Note on the piece:
The viewers were invited to actually enter the structure. Although unseen
from the outside, an upright ladder that ran from the bottom to the top was
set on each section of the house, all around the inside. The viewers had to
climb up and down numerous times in order to exit. The structure indeed
required stoic activity.
