Don't be scared to be slow, just be scared not to move.
Chinese proverb

1 - Take two robotic vacuum cleaners
2 - Use them as bases for two competitive sculptures
3 - Put the robots bases on a two and a half meters squared board
4 - Let them wander around, avoid each other, get hurt, struggle against each other, fail or destroy each other
5 - Choose a "winner" in an absolutely arbitrary way, and start again by changing the sculpture for an other one

Try in this battle to always preserve randomness. The absurdity, the nonsense, the weird interactivity as well as the frenetic mobility are keys to success!
Uncontrollable movements and unpredictable results.
