“Visitors leave their traces on the space. Their experience of the exhibit becomes manifest in the exhibit.

The impulses to cover and to cluster — to cover and conquer a new white space or to cluster around a social crowd of others — make the distribution playful and human.” – via

It’s a an exercise in participatory art, in layering and builup.
