In the exhibition, the central role is occupied by a 1 m³ unsuccessfully depoliticized concrete cube [NFC – non-fungible cube; concrete block/non-chained] balanced on one of its vertices, representing the transposition into a physical space of the iconic gif animation created by Štromajer in 1996 and recreated in 2021 for AR environments by art historian and curator Sakrowski. The first two iterations of this trilogy complete the installation by materialising on the screens of visitors’ electronic devices.

A cubic function is a function of the form ƒ(x)=ax³+bx²+cx+d where the coefficients a, b, c and d are complex numbers, and the variable x takes real values, and a≠0. It is both a polynomial function of degree three, and a real function. Setting ƒ(x)=0 produces a cubic equation of the form ax³+bx²+cx+d=0.

Na razstavi ima osrednjo vlogo kubični meter velika, neuspešno delpolitizirana betonska kocka, postavljena na enega svojih kotov. Kocka predstavlja prenos ikonične gif animacije, ki jo je Štromajer ustvaril leta 1996, umetnostni zgodovinar in kustos Sakrowski pa jo je leta 2021 poustvaril za okolja AR, v fizični prostor. Postavitev dopolnjujeta prvi dve izvedbi trilogije z upredmetenjem na zaslonih elektronskih naprav obiskovalk.
