‘Lift’ consisted of an ethereal ten metre vibrating column, responding to the towering abandoned space of a disused post-office. Formerly established as a site of transportation and communicative networks, this accumulation of oscillating lines sonically activated the space. The audience sensing something, yet having the work evade them initially, was typically caught unaware upon realizing its elusive presence. The commanding column contrasted heavily with its constituting vulnerable wires. The formal verticality confounded viewers as the seemingly unsupported erect lines exited seamlessly beyond the exposed roofline.
