Description

Four aluminium rods of slightly different lengths are suspendent from thin lines and are set in circular motion by the transparent rotating discs on the ceiling. The discs rotate in slighlty different speeds, by means of a system of belt and pulleys and a single electric motor.  An ensemble of complex and chaotic movements is created, with the rods occasinally striking each other when their trajectories meet. This moment is not easy to predict and evokes a feeling of expectation.
