The piece consists of two balls made of tissue paper, bike spokes and a robot. They inhabit the same space, divided in two parts, and they move around very slowly.
A robot is moving a ball that has spokes attached to it and another layer of tissue paper on top of the spokes. The entities have IR sensors that help them define their perimeter of allocated space and they move randomly within the specified area.
There is violence surrounding the piece that builds up through time. The objects’ movements are slow and their appearance is non-threatening but, when they get close to one another, they damage each other, bringing the possibility of total destruction. As time passes by and the balls interact, the dynamic of exchange is such that it progressively tears down the outer shell of tissue paper leaving open the inner structure with the spokes exposed. At this moment in time, our perception of the piece changes. The two entities transform in something different. They degenerate.
The end result of their interaction is unpredictable. The two pieces may move separately or they can get entangled. Once entangled, the drive for random independent movement can result in mutually destructive behavior. They are two autonomous entities without any control from the artist or the viewers.
