The birth of Venus out of the shell symbolises how beauty is born. The performance shows the process of giving birth to a phenomenon that humans find attractive: Symmetry in nature. Taking the patterns of frequencies, realtime patterns are transformed into a 3D virtual space confronting the phenomenon of natural symmetry and mathematics with mathematical patterns in a simulated virtual world. The birth of imperfection examines our craving for order and our searching for perfection in ourself.
