This wall sculpture is part of a larger project titled Mesh Anarchism that investigates possible societies other than the one we have.  
It resembles a kitchen cupboard or trophy cabinet, a glimpse into the privacy of a suburban home.  Within this black pixels jitter and swarm across an embedded video screen. Each of these little pixels acts to maximize its own flexibility with respect to the density conditions that other agents around it provide - close enough to interact, but far enough to keep its own possibilities.

On the edge of a swarm, in the Goldilocks zone of the suburban fringe, they can find the sweet spot between collective security and individual autonomy.
