En Puntos by Javier Pérez presents a very strong and almost hypnotic appearance. It features a ballerina whose pointe shoes are extended by kitchen knives. She stands on the lid of a grand piano set on a stage, fighting to maintain balance against the odds. The start is pretty graceful, as she moves on the piano on knife tip. As seconds pass, the ballerina meets exhaustion and anger as the graceful figure changes her tones to rage that show in hits on the piano with the knife bearing pointe shoes.

Movements of flies and their interactions are captured by a video camera that then feeds it to control circuits, which eventually end up controlling where the revolver aims.
