In the Dutch Mountains

I have been observing the formal principles that 

are present inside the staircase’s architecture 

and the behavior of the people who are ascending and

descending the staircase. 

Treating the staircase as a musical metre

I have made robotic characters who are exposing 

various possibilities of relating to our symmetrical staircase

existing out of groups of eleven steps.

The robots are performing variations on our daily performance of walking 

And these variations are presented as a clockwork of musical compositions

in the central cross-section of our school.
