As the enabler of the skyscraper and the modern metropolis, the elevator’s origins first in the mining industry and later in theater scenography were mostly forgotten as it disappeared into the core. Inside the car, as a voluntary captive for a limited period of time, users are stuck in a random sampling of mankind – a freeze – frame of the city.
