A metal construction was connected to the wall of the space. At the end of each side there is a monitor installed. On one monitor you can see a man ‘s face and on the other one there is a woman’s face.  On the ground under the construction there is a bowl of water.  In the water you can see a reflection of one of the faces. Every 6 minutes a small motor moves a weight up so that the construction gets out of

balance.The monitor that is up falls down. By gravity the construction comes to a

halt again. The light of the TV monitors shine and light up the wall as the

construction travel s down towards the bowl. There will always be only one face

visible at any given time.
