28 x 28 x 3.8 cm (closed box)
Edition of 111 signed copies
A polyglot text-generatoring 'machine' which allows the user to produce "mobile dogmas" consisting of ten hexagonal cards, each with 12 words that are common in German, English and French (there are 48 German-French, 60 German-English and 12 German-French-English words). The hexagons pivot on a plane and form phrases in three directions on the hexagonal roof. They can also be arranged differently on the ten slots, further increasing the possibilities.
