Description: 

A Roberval balance built with scaffolding poles, wooden palettes and book-filled cardboard boxed to “make weight.” The Sales gosses climb upon a plateau of the balance made of a wooden palette. Assistants put books on top until their weight makes the Sales gosses topple over such that they end up on the ceiling.
