Rope No. 1 with 15 Pulleys and 6 Weights"
Goliath Visual Space, Brooklyn, NY, 2003
A rope 80 ft. (24m) long is curved several times by pulleys. The rope itself is free; not attached to any walls, ceilings nor pillars, but supports six heavy sandbags by the function of the pulleys. The middle four weigh about 30 lbs. (14kg) each, and the end two weigh about 15 lbs. (7kg) each. They will move when the balance is lost.
