    300kg of iron sand flows down continuously from a height of 7 meters, at the center of an open atrium. A mountain of sand quietly takes shape, starting from nothing. The particle size of this iron sand is strictly aligned: the particles reflect the light and glitter. Emotion, thought, and life itself exist, invisibly, inside time. <D.W>
