The installation takes place in a room, containing around 16 autonomously acting robots, which visitors are allowed to enter and experience. The robots act according to a dogmatic command that drives them to perpetually place themselves in the spatial centre of their immediate environment. Following the laws of action and reaction, this simple command makes it possible to experience complex interactions such as short and long-range effect and the ensuing adaptive process of the visitors. Micro.spheres reflects on the complex interrelations that exist between 'living' bodies and their environment. In particular, it addresses the changing social structures of our present day and age.
