13th floor

“OTIS. Vertical tales – 13th floor” is a tribute to the inventor of the elevator, Otis Elisha Graves who presented his original device in the form of a big show during the New York Universal Fair in the mid-nineteenth century.
If on the one hand the elevator represented the most revolutionary vertical thrust of urban horizons, on the other hand the looped sounds of the electronic composition bring to the modular obsessiveness of the movement of an elevator imprisoned in the repetitive journey between its floors. This work is part of a larger work developed by Økapi among 15 floors.
In this case the lift stops on the thirteenth floor.
