"three samples" is a small static work composed of 30 white prims presented in a small white cube. The composition of the work results from a simple experiment: three poles of 10 rectangular prims each are exposed to the effect of the physics engine for exactly one second.for the interested reader, this work is once more a reference to marcel duchamp, this time to his work on chance, the trois stoppages etalon.
