During the exhibition Very Good/Good/Not So Good/Bad 1646 will be hosting a marble run that stretches out through the entire gallery space. The installation consists of a structure of tubes that connect one singular hole with four exit holes carefully positioned in the exhibition space. Each exit hole represents one of the four terms taken from the title; ‘Very Good’, ‘Good’, ‘Not So Good’ and ‘Bad’. Every day a sphere will be dropped into the apparatus to then, after being transmitted through the tubular system, finally exit from one of the four holes determining the value of the information it represents.

Throughout the duration of the exhibtion Colson will send the 1646 office a file every day: a drawing, a quote, a story, an experience and so on. The printed file is presented in a clickframe next to the exit hole in question during the remainder of the day.

The installation uses chance as its main ally to fiddle around with institutions like quality and morality in a playful way.
