Scissor Lifter Love/ Experiment No.46




Scissor Lifter Love/ Experiment No.46


Material/ 4 scissor lifts, 4 ramps, tennis court, 2 black nets
Measures/ 23,7 x 10,9 x 6 m
2017/ Berlin/ Germany

Set-Up and Execution/
A tennis court with a blue acrylic floor is set up in a room. The base of the tennis court measures 23.77 x 10.97 m. Black tennis nets are stretched in the middle axis of the T formed by the service line and the center service line. The deployed nets form a cross. At the ends of the field, 80 cm high ramps are positioned. A scissor lift stands before each of the four ramp. The scissor lifts are traveling simultaneously with the same speed up the ramps.
Supposition/
At an undetermined point, the scissor lifts on the ramp will incline toward the center, colliding with the opposite scissor lift. Maybe all four scissor lifts will come to a standstill leaning against each other in the middle of the playing field. Some of the scissor lifts might possibly overturn.
