22 visual and audio cubes in autonomous rotation. Each cube is independant, but all play together. Rapid rythm, slow autonomous evolutions.
In between the hard and the soft, the lonesome and the crowd, the synchronous and the asynchronous, the predefined and the autonomous, the synesthetic and the serendipity, the full and the destructured, the totalitarian and the free-will, the imposition and the proposition.
