Seven mirrored balls roll slowly through the gallery space from a shared starting point whereupon each ball adopts its own speed and direction. Its smooth surface reflects its immediate outside world in a distorted, convex perspective. Fascinated by their own mirror image and the reflections of the surroundings, the visitor follows the random movements of one or several balls through the gallery.
