In this piece, 12 plastic spheres (three types of balls with diameters of 12, 15, and 18 cm which are moved by a motor and change direction when they bump into an obstacle) race about randomly over artificial turf, and the piece is completed by having spectators enter the turf area and tamper with the spheres. The spheres take the place of pets that may be seen playing in a park on a weekend or holiday.
