This piece is a technical approach to the idea of 'coexistence of structure and chaos', intended to be shown in Akihabara, the electric town in Tokyo, a very complex, structured and chaotic atmosphere. Lego is a such technical and modular system that has become an icon of the Order. It is well known for the public at the same time by his conditions of 'rigid' and versatile'. In this work behaves by both in a very post-modern way. The development of the pieces in the field follows the near fractal pattern of the 'aurea proportion'.

In each shot beginning with a single piece of lego, the lego piece shifts from solid to melted and back to a solid state again. In every other shot the number of Lego pieces on screen doubles.
