Bits and Pieces transforms the gallery into an almost living organism through the choreographed movements of ordinary objects. The 108 motorized spheres in the installation are individually opened and closed, creating a poetic performance of orchestrated activity. The floating, colorful spheres fold and unfold in organic rhythms, their modulation becoming a metaphor for the ways in which art can redefine the everyday.
