On three monitors, word fragments rotate like icons of a slot machine. The rotation is activated without any influence of the viewer – there is no lever or a slot to insert coins. The rotating word fragments would make up well-known words if the reels stopped in the right order: “love”, “wealth”, “glory” to name a few. They represent common values of our society that are no longer restricted to ideals linked to honour, moderation or morals in general.
