I will present a construction for minimal dynamical systems on point-like spaces. Such a system may be taken to be uniquely ergodic and in this case the C*-algebra associated to its orbit-breaking equivalence relation is isomorphic to the Jiang-Su algebra.

This is joint work with Robin Deeley and Ian Putnam.
