An inventor stays in touch with his heart and transforms the mundane into something magical.

Toothbrush maracas, an umbrella with plant pots, a teacup cooling fan and the reverse bungee. Go straight off the wall, said his father, and Dominic Wilcox listened. This short film follows the London artist, inventor and designer on his quest to come up with something creative every day. The result is a font of productivity as he transforms the mundane and ordinary into surprises, wonders and, sometimes, just plain absurdities.
