This was an installation at Mediaruimte, Brussels in 2004, a simulation of a cyclic universe. Every frame 10000 new moving particles are added so that after several ten thousand "years" (1 rotation = 1 year) the space ended up as white cube, fully saturated with matter. Due to the way this cyclic nature has been coded it too created the paradoxical situation where the simulation never actually slows down even though the number of moving particles is approaching infinity. The lines are a visualization of the invisible moving attractors in that space and the inverse square law used to compute the particles trajectories. More info: toxi.co.uk/p5/ideaspace
