A perforated metal box the same dimensions of the lift interior blocks a straightforward exit from the lift. Building users are invited to physically push this box (which is housed inside a second perforated metal box) in order to open up a narrow exit corridor. This physical relationship inverts the passive user— active building dynamic present within the lift interior, and the process of moving these perforated screens creates a series of moiré effects which are seen against the gridded circle pattern of the building facade.
