A woman spends a lazy afternoon at home. She is having a cup of coffee. On the wall, next to the flower pot, there is a tiny lizard lurking and hunting for flies flying around the ceiling lamp. On the shelf, there is an old radio. The fan turns slowly. A man in the kitchen is peeling and cutting vegetables. The traffic is regular and just few people hang around the street. Nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. The woman yawnslooks around bored and lets her mind wander. She observes the lizzard hunting for flies. Suddenly one fly’s strange behaviour attracts her attention.
The woman looks around carefully. With every moment she spots more and more odd activities around her. Ordinary objects that seemingly have nothing in common, all of the sudden in her eyes seem to form a kind of system where they secretly communicate with each other. Because of similar features, shapes or way of moving, those objects seem to work according to some common principle shaping kind of micro constellations.
The rhythm of observed universes accelerates. The Woman realizes she is no longer only the observer but she makes part of this constelation and she is no longer able to foresee what will happen next.
