'The house that made up its vision as it walked, is a series of never-ending M. C. Escher-Piranesi-esque staircases made from neon tubes. An active sculpture, neon tubes light up at varying sequences, constantly changing viewers’ perception of the work. Encountering the work from above, the staircases look as though they continually ascend and descend, but from a side view, they appear flat and disconnected emphasizing Eliasson’s obsession with models and experiencing artworks first hand.'
(Phillips, 'The house that made up its vision as it walked', online catalogue, 2010)
