A swarm of tiny lights resembling fireflies floats in the otherwise completely dark room. In a hypnotic manner, this multitude of lights slowly but continuously moves forward until disappearing in the dark central area, and then retreats backwards towards the walls of the room.
Two large-scale cylindrical objects hang from the ceiling, one next to another, with the slight overlap. They are made of vertically suspended white tulle (transparent fabric) sheets. One cylinder is slowly rotating clockwise and the other one counterclockwise. A slide projector is installed far behind the cylinders. It projects a hexagonal grid of numerous thin light rays onto the fabric. Due to the transparency of the fabric, light is rendered on each sheet of tulle, creating a three-dimensional grid of moving light dots.
