La Réserve

A bot repeatedly triggers a fire extinguisher, spreading carbon dyoxyde on the windows of the glassbox. 
The smokey traces that temporary blur the visibility slowly evaporate, only leaving an imprint, such as the one left by some waves on the sand or the one left by a rifle chasing crows away from an electric wire.

"To adjust, fix and improve the circumstances of reality, to work on their meaning as on forms of thought while organizing an unlikely sequence of unstable, intermittent, unpredictable events.
Brief anarchistic attempts, precarious DIY solutions, entropic adventures. 
To work both with empiricism and great care, establishing possible collaborations with and between things, until they hold together by complementarity, until the whole gets greater than the sum of its parts. "
