Description:  Swirling particles continually formed and un-formed a cubic space while being projected into the windows of a ticket information booth..  The windblown particles streaked by and became temporarily trapped in the 'corners' of the cube.  This activity momentarily revealed the edges of the otherwise invisible cube.  The image constituted a temporal 'space' always in formation.
