Creed set out to bring together every different sort of ball he could acquire and allow all 800 of them to roll free for the viewer to interact with.

- Multiple parts, overall dimensions variable
- Art Fund grant:
- £11,500 ( Total: £31,500)
- Acquired in:
- Hauser & Wirth
Each ball is different in scale, weight and appearance and each is meant for a different function. Creed has stated that his art is '50% about what I make and 50% about what other people make of it.' In this mobile and chaotic installation, sharing the experience with other people is part of the work.
