A floating cube tailored specifically to the museum architecture determines the empty volume that constitutes the space in which the work is realized by the visitor. The normal range of physical action is in direct relation to the possibility of it occurring in a space that is essentially uninhibited. The work offers the visitor the possibility of consciously experiencing the loss of this broad degree of freedom, which is incorporated into our daily existence.
