Check out this poor quality but interesting video.
It looks like LiveLeak has dug up some old video of some remarkable design. Got to wonder how such an incredible set of stairs was built and you might even wonder why you’ve never heard of the Escherian Stairwell in building 7 in Rochester before?
The answer to that last question is that the stairwell is a failed Kickstarter. The team wanted $12000 but only raised $940 from 30 backers. Of course, the Kickstarter project wasn’t to build the stairs… it was to fake it. This was a project to build a modern myth.
Although the Kickstarter failed (and videos supporting it are vanishing from the web) I suspect the myth may succeed. If the video is out it is out. People will watch, not ask questions but tell their friends.
Bravo. It’s like Mage: the Ascension come true.
