Outline

Two stones lie on top of a balanced steel plate. The aim of the machine is to create a perfect equilibrium state by moving the stones to the appropriate positions. In an perpetual process the system succeeds to prevent the imminent divergence again and again by its permanent endeavors. Instead of the pursued state of well-adjusted stability, the work arrives in a fragile but constant situation between fall and float.
