University of Art and Design Linz

Karin Sander’s work Transzendenzaufzug (Transcendence Lift) for the University of Art and Design in Linz is based on the idea of the cargo lift as a central tool of the institution and highlights its importance for art in more ways than one: She extends the glass lift beyond the roof of the left bridgehead building by adding a glass structure, thereby turning it into a small observation tower that affords a stunning 360° view of the city. This illuminated section of the lift does not have exits, but is more of a walk-in light sculpture in which people and/or objects become visible from the outside.
