Every small spider presents acrobatic moves such as cycling, looping and incredible jumping. The compilation into a huge spider which moves and plays within the scenery creates a Droste effect (the effect of a picture recursively appearing within itself). The spiders move within a fixed structure, which is the spider web.

The set allows a multidimensional experience for the audience (form and movement, space and time). The spiders which cause a lot of paradoxical feelings in all of us like attraction and repulsion are represented in a humoristic way as magical objects.
