    TEXT PANEL:Her apartment was on the ground floor, which meant she was in earshot of footsteps and conversations. As the climbers or climber reached the 10th step, there was a break in the rhythm of the climbing, because its riser was slightly lower than the rest. From her apartment it sounded as though they had tripped, especially those who were unfamiliar with this inconsistency. She could hear the warnings offered by tenants as they guided their guests to their floor; particularly when they were assisted in carrying something; the apologies when they had forgotten to mention it in time; or the conversations that took place in midstream, that indicated the level of familiarity between climbers. There were some other sounds, not too long ago that seemed to be coming from the landing below. They were faint and unrecognizable. It did not sound like talking, but more like the rhythmic lifting of a heavy object.

    TEXT PANEL:As they reached the Bronze period-the second to last room, they observed that all the visitors had securely fastened their headsets and moved from object to object, completely oblivious to any ambient sound. Their gaze and pace was guided by the tapes. There was the possibility that no one would notice except maybe the guards, but they did not wander far from the large groups with headsets. Generally, museum-goers feel it is more efficient to work their way from the top down. In the past, staircases were the ideal location; the landing just above the exit door to the top floor of the exhibition space worked well, and if people could hear you they would maybe stop and listen, but would not venture to look. Therefore, hardly anyone went beyond this point to the next landing, and staff rarely used the public staircase. Unfortunately, this institution did not have that vertical expanse.

    TEXT PANEL:"Okay, one more time, look down the widest street - you got that... right - count 1-2-3-4 rooftops - then look across to your right, past the big railing of connecting balconies, and look for the tangle of antennas, across from the triangle roof - do you see that?" "No." "Okay, do you see the triangular roof?" "No...oh, yeah now I do. It's got a little rooftop apartment on it?"

"No, I don't see what you're talking about." "Well they are right there." "To the left or to the right of that building?" "Well, it's to the right - kinda on a diagonal... now do you see what I'm talking about?" "No, I don't." "Well you are looking in the right direction... wait they just got up and went inside - you missed it."
