meteorite, magnets, threads overall dimensions variable

The work consists of iron meteorites from Campo del Cielo placed on a pedestal and three small magnets attached to three strings of twine in red, yellow and blue. The other end of the string is fastened to the ceiling, askew to the meteorite. The meteorites are moved until you find the required distance for the magnets to hang in the magnetic field. If this precarious situation is disturbed, either the magnets will fall away into the space, or jump to the meteorite.
