The Unexpected Guest
“BREAKING NEWS: An elevator ‘free falls’ in the up direction, crashing into the floor above.”
Truth be told, it was a public-realm commission for the Liverpool Biennial 2012 in the U.K. According to the artist, Oded Hirsch, The Lift:
“…Hints at a mysterious subterranean world emerging abruptly through the city’s streets, the unexpected and unexplained presence asks questions about how we negotiate concealed spaces and disrupts the experience of shoppers and passers-by.”
