The quantity of global earthquakes will smash
onto a concrete slab. By using data in real time (live data)
the concrete slab, will be destroyed gradually electronically controlled .
A natural random value results from counting global earthquakes, which are neither calculable nor exactly predictable.
In this way the concrete slab acts as a display for such data visualization.
At the very moment an earthquake happens, that is when the chisel is falling down on the concrete slab,
the attention is attracted to the project.
When at rest, the chisel lying on the medium,
always ready to destroy itself.
