With a short life span, the electro-magnetic mossy parasite is in its sporophytic stage, spreading sporangium-bearing thermistors outwards.
Performed by delicate pancake coils that jump in the proximity of strong neodymium magnetic fields, its rhythms vary corresponding to environmental temperature fluctuations.

Configured from leftovers and small pieces from
the Cheonggyecheon electronic market, Seoul, the circuitry accumulation finds its hideaway in concrete fissures.
