After The Order Electrus (2005) and Metalosis Maligna (2006), Floris Kaayk has far from lost his fascination with self-regulating mechanisms. Using scale-models and computer animations, he creates a post-apocalyptic city, with mutated body parts as its mute inhabitants. A tangle of fingers finds an eye, and soon bundles of legs are added. Like diligent insects, they try to get a new construction off the ground to produce order out of chaos.
