Not to be Touched, 2006
The system is balanced. But it is stable not because it is strong and reinforced. It holds its fragile state by using opposing forces, counter-weights and its own good reputation. You can see the scars from previous encounters. You know that even a light touch can wake up such destructive forces that not only the system will be destroyed but anyone standing in the vicinity of it. Nevertheless you are dying to feel it.
