planes — outside paris

Par Louis Conforti, 23/11/15

the project takes the form of a 8.25mx8.25m slab, inclinated in the middle by a 7° angle.
this inclination is based on the relativity of verticals (therefore horizontals) between paris and lausanne.
both places have a different horizontal relative to their tangent on the terrestrial globe.

when standing on the slab, the transient always finds himself to be on the inclinated plane, 
and as he walks from end to end, the slab overbalances, making it impossible for him 
to stand on the horizontal plane.

the slab has a height of 0.7m at the edges. when at one of the edges, the center lies at a height of 0.7m, 
relatively to the transient's size. standing on the edge of the slab results in a change of horizon
equivalent to standing on a table, then a second progressive distorsion from 0.7 to 1.4m from the ground
when going up to the centre.
