Prosperity is a stand-alone device that manages grains of rice. A tweezer moves from one surface to the other, gripping on its way the grains which have been placed randomly, and then depositing them in an orderly manner on another surfaces. This process leaves the grains aligned while preserving their initial orientation. The device, being limited by its own perceptions highlights the exchanges between the machine and the matter. The grain of rice, symbol of fertility and prosperity, is carefully digitized and memorized to be moved.
