Stairs are intermediate spaces that connect floors to each other. They are therefore both obligatory and shared places of passage. They are also places of movement, of flow, with a very high population density at certain times of the day, at the precise moment of the inter-course, and a great void the rest of the time. Here, this double characteristic of flow and verticality is expressed by the crashing fall of some 600 ping pong balls.
