  • The general rhythm of this infinitesimal and supertemporal work is spread over three distinct sections, the components of which should preferably be offered to the public in three different rooms. If the premises are not big enough, it could be put on in three separate spaces of the same exhibition or presentation venue where the organisers have tried to create a sequence or direction for visitors.

    Chapter I: This first chapter comprises 23 aesthapeirist ensembles which spectators will see on a wall, near the entrance, but on the edge of the positions in which the supertemporal expressions inscribed in the other sectors of this piece will later take place.
