Peripetics is a piece in six vignettes that show imaginary states of a system after taking catastrophic turns. In a nonlinear order we see expressive constructions like the gallery installation of an oversized educational model of a plant-body-machine, a liquid plaster turbulence forming a staircase and supersonic induction of heart convolutions.
The setting is that of a contemporary art gallery, pushing questions about the meaning of representational imagery in times of ready made simulation techniques and an art market circulating virtual images rather than material objects themselves.

Peripetics Ex Machina is not unlike a Making of Peripetics.
