The Installation invites us to carry out a self-experiment:
What will happen when I step onto the magnetic floor of the passageway
with the provided magnetic shoes? Will I float or be stuck to the ground
or will the experiment create a state of instability?
In this work gravity and magnetism are combined with human curiosity
which is the basis for scientific research.
The passageway which blocks the sight to our left and right
can be viewed as symbol for the scientific attempt to focus
only on the essential features of a phenomenon.
