It's art, after all..

Maybe the huge pile of rope is part of the art?  Like the threads of 
life that the 3 fates decide to cut.  Or if the rope/thread gets tangled 
and jammed.  And the fact that the machine cannot go backwards.

There is a mention in the write up of the whole order out of chaos 
thing, too.

The artist has some other interesting things.. the "dot matrix" graffiti 
printer, for instance.
