Visitors are invited to wear a protective gas mask and, thus made conscious of their own breath, witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro-universe. Matter is taking centre stage, dancing in the light and airstreams of the black box, with remote sounds of human masses and activity filling the otherwise empty room.

With environmental challenges, population growth and our ever-expanding needs in mind, the Malstaf brothers sought a way to zoom out and contemplate our temporary existence on spaceship Earth. The aim: "Making a work with a minimum amount of material and the biggest possible spatial impact."
