Any person suited to tame the installation will be granted a privileged access to a refuge within, half way between a confessional booth and a teleportation box.



The visitor, barefoot, wanders through a peaceful garden, where an oversized rock penetrated. Walking around, she/he eventually discovers a fault through which sneaking in the block itself seems likely.

Surprisingly, the inner atmosphere is far less hostile than expected. After making her/himself comfortable, the intruder shortly notices that any single vibration triggers an interaction with the structure. If fancied, she/he is given the chance to take control of the atmospheric elements projected on the ceiling.
