46’19’’ – 2017

A map of Brussels with 427 Avenue Louise, 1000 Brussels as its centre. From there, a first circle with a radius of 25m is drawn. Following the accumulation principle of the Fibonacci sequence, taking 25m as the first number after 0, circles are drawn until they have a radius of 5825m. A run is undertaken under the following constraint: forward two, backward one, forward two, backward one. Over a distance of 5825m, the distance covered is 13025m.

The ground is the only reference point for this run. Physical effort is not represented, it is eclipsed by this Fibonacci sequence. The physical performance is overtaken by its numerical representation.
