Based on the concept of Stigmergy, a mechanism of indirect   coordination,  through  the  environment, between agents where subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent and systematic activity. 

Dancing curves installation is an attempt to design something that blends in the beautiful piece of work by Ar. Mies Van der Rohe without taking away the beauty of the simplistic yet magnificent Barcelona pavilion.

Placed where it adds mystery to the view from the inside, breaks the monotony of the straight lines throughout the pavilion and blends with the texture of the materials used.
