Orproject developed their isosurface using an algorithm that situates the exhibited materials as central points in a gravitational forcefield. The envelope is pulled and distorted around these centers. Comprised of over three thousand individual segments, the tessellated geometric structure calls to mind the movement of mass influenced by physical forces such as winds, pressure and temperature variations. The Urja force – or energy – of the exhibits is meant to influence the movement of visitors through the shape of the walls that guide them.

The structure can be interpreted in many ways – it evokes the symbolism of roots, trunks, and branches and it reflects the movement of planets along a trajectory influenced by stars and black holes.
