Mind-Blowing Art Installation With A Rotating Staircase (Video)

Recent art installation situated in Paris’s Panthéon is becoming a worldwide sensation, and it is leaving spectators in awe.


The artwork set consists of rotating stairs which acrobats continuously walk up and fall off, bounce from a trampoline situated in the center of the stairs and jump right back up onto the stairs from which they have fallen. It is like a never-ending loop, so no single acrobat is ever meant to reach the top, or sink to the bottom.


Yoann Bourgeois’s (director, acrobat, and choreographer) installation is named “The Mechanics of History,” or, in French, “La Mecanique de l’Histoire.”


France’s Center of National Monuments said that Yoann Bourgeois’s project depicts the complexity of movement. However, we can all agree that every spectator of this stunning act can interpret it differently.


It almost looks like it is made on a computer, and these guys are coded robots. They jump on the so trampoline light and smooth, and land exactly where they should, even if the stairs continuously move.


Some people say that the artwork represents a way to perceive history. As we say “history always repeats itself.” No matter how long it'll take for the acrobat to get back on the stairs, they always end up in the same place. It is also a synonym of the human life. We're still in a rush to become more successful, and if we let the blockades in the way consume us, we'll never land on the stairs when we fall on the trampoline.


All of these extraordinary interpretations is what makes “La Mecanique de l’Histoire.” so mesmerizing. Everybody can see the art performance from a different angle.


Thanks to Tony Whitfield and Archilovers for this mind-blowing video!
