The elevator space depicted creates a private/public viewing space. In this painting three individuals define eachothers social status by apartment level. Several indicators are utilized to transform this mental struggle into something visible - the physical arm gestures between the individuals, the height of their legs, the redness of their noses, the size of the ties, positioning of the individuals, and the transparency of the ties into the background.
