Description:
On a wooden board rubbed rough, a magnet behind the wooden board moves metal slivers. The viewer only sees the dancing motions of the slivers, which recall living beings. Lux separates these symbolic creatures from one another, first with a curving line, then by hatching out the "forbidden territory", and finally with a straight line. The continuously moving creatures, separated from one another, search for meeting points, like families and friends who have been separated by the artificial borders established in the course of the 20th century. (Evelin Páll)
