Every person is a microcosm, and every microcosm has a story to tell.

“CUBES” examines individual and yet so stereotypical human universes. From time to time, we all feel like lost souls within their own small cubes – even though our thoughts, moments and lives are connected to one another, in every second. When are we going to realise?

What do their inhabitants think and feel? And why are they, seemingly, all alone? And do they, maybe, think the same of me when they watch me watching them…?

The position of the nine rooms:

All nine cubes are linked to one another, metaphorically and visually held together and connected by means of water running through the walls of the building. Therefore, the rooms have to be examined as follows:
