He built for his grandchildren a small feriss wheel and a football table. Kamen Stoyanov went to visit him and to learn how to built such a table from a garbage. He filmed on video his plaing grandchildren and the other kids around. Kamen Stoyanov built his table in a more minimal way as it purpose is to be shown in exhibitions.

The figurs in the Stoyanovs object can be seen as a methapor for the audiance - active as well as passive.
