The work is a machine that explores the transition from order to chaos through motion and sound. an electric motor forces the work in a rotating motion. Five table tennis balls are lifted from the bottom to the top in a loop. when each ball arrives at the top it is pulled down by gravity. The ball will follow an unpredictable path until it reaches the bottom of the work again. However, the destiny of the ball is easy to predict.
