  Work Details  
  Metal strips over two metres in length and made of suspension steel are struck by motorised metal hammers causing them to swing, whip and clash against each other. After a while the vibrations become slower and the metal strips return to their initial positions before being struck once again and sent into motion. A nervous, pulsating environment is created in which events take on an unusually life-like character.
