The Site is Ex Teresa, a redundant church. Over the centuries the building tilted to one side, due to tectonic events such as earthquakes. 4 leveled platforms mark the take-of positions of the four drones. In the middle of the former altar area, a simple plastic chair defines the position of a drone master or one of his representatives. The master will occasionally activate the machine and alter the 2-dimensional base in to a 3-dimensinal tetrahedron.

TETRACTYS I & II have been part of "entre límites/zwischen grenzen" – an exhibition and residence project of singuhr – projects berlin and Goethe-Institut Mexico, a project of the Mexico Year in Germany 2016/2017. Made possible with the kind support of the Berlin Senate Office for Cultural Affairs.
