An experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov featuring the movement of over two billion black and white spheres in a series of enclosed spaces.

The physics of each animation (flow, diffusion, pressure, etc.) is displayed by subtle text on the walls of each space. Zhestkov sez:

We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.
