In the Accelerator gallery, akin to the Greek myth of Psyche who tentatively sorts life ou of chaos, both artists, Marta Ferracin and Lisa Tolcher meticulously have been ordering and re-ordering oxidised piles of copper and environmental Cardiospermum grandiflorum (balloon vine) seeds. In order from disorder, 2018 performance Ferracin has been counting and transcribing on paper how many noxious seeds has eradicated from the habitat , while Tolcher has been cutting patinated copper thus estimating, on paper as well, how many chemical waste humans accumulate in the environment. The performance is an extension of the collaborative work entropy where both artists differently but equally have been creating localised order from disorder and viceversa.
