Tending to Zero
Janken is an Asian game based on the relation of hardness between a par of scissors, a stone and a piece of paper that represents the harmony of the choices. In this video installation the visitors see a moving frame with three hands playing this game. This situation is simulated as a perfectly balanced system (no winner/no loser) through 9 video fragments which show the possibilities of not winning the game. These fragments are shown randomly, resulting an unpredictable endless video sequence.
