  • Description

  • The Relativator transports food court and airline club patrons between the second and third levels of the concourse. The concept focuses on demonstrating an observed experience based on Einstein’s Elevator Thought Experiment. The elevator ride becomes a tangible way to convey Einstein’s Special Relativity concept by coupling the rider’s subjective sensation of acceleration, inertia, etc. with a real-time display of weight flux as well as the elevator cab’s shifting transparency through the custom glass, thus attracting attention both for the riders and passersby.
