Tres saltos de escala

A sculptural piece in tower mode, which is divided into three levels on top of which a folding chair in black stands. The tower is lined by wooden slats,which prevent see at first glance the access mechanism to the third level:

-First level: Located at the base of the tower and serves as access to superiors levels. Even being considered the access level, only in certain conditions may fulfill that function.

-Second level: Hides the mechanism and mode of access to the top level. It works as a liaison and transit zone to the top of the tower.

-Third level (top): Point priori inaccessible, which can only remain a person and in which the folding chair is. Is the highest point of the piece.

The hidden mechanism that allows access to the top of the tower is based on a ladder of two bodies that in connection with the front legs of the folding chair, rests at an angle on one end of the second level. When the chair is open, the mechanism remains hidden on the second level. When the chair is open, the mechanism is activated, moving the stairs to thefirst level, by the same performance folding chair is operated. Only then, the first and third level are connected, allowing a new individual occupies the top place.

The tower will have an automatism that when thereis movement in the vicinity of the first level, the opening mechanism and access to the top of the structure is operated.

This automatism only the first visitor of the tower will benefit, because at the time the tower has an occupant, only himself can reclose the chair and allow another person to climb after leaving the summit.
