The states of receiving, giving and destroying form are biological aspects that form and inform the subject. In a resilient profile, these states intertwine and tend to coexist through the paradox of collision. Placeball remains acutely focused on the depiction of such resilience, a concept known as plasticity. In order for a subject to claim plasticity, the capacity of receiving and giving form, as well as the explosion and annihilation of such form through an extended passage of time are prerequisite. Placeball is consisted of three phases performed in a loop and operates upon this collision, igniting the intersection between the formative and destructive states. Alpha and gamma frequency sound is used to help the brain to relax and maintain better focus respectively.
