The world around us comprises very small particles that are not visible to the mere eyes. Their constellation is not solid and everything around us is in the constant move. Particles exchange their energy, twinkle, detach and join each other again. Rest is just illusive; a slight change of the environment, a butterfly’s flapping of wings or deflection of solar energy is sufficient to emerge sharp radiance from the darkness in a flash… growth changes into collapse and a regular grid changes into a bunch of rays.
Our company is also created by constant movement and exchange of energy among people. Relationships can be observed in the “big world” in a similar manner as at essential particles of the matter. A sudden movement brings unexpected changes. What does our future depend on? What role a human being plays in the course of the whole society? What are the reactions among people and mass behaviour?
Light points of the installation UNREST tremble with energy driven by movement of water streams deep under the level of the river Vltava. They react on their own or as a totality.
