A double glass door with a long piece of wood attached to both sides. Inside two benches are placed on a heap of concrete bricks. On one bench stands a fine selection of art books from the school's library I am stretched out on the other bench. The spectators can choose to open a door and push forward the piece of wood and make the bench tumble over. At first the books go down on the floor after that I go down on the floor.
