Editorial Reviews

Product Description

THE WAY THINGS GO is a film by "the merry pranksters of contemporary art" (New York Times) renowned Swiss artists Peter Fischli & David Weiss, that chronicles the lifespan of their most famous kinetic sculpture as it amazingly self-destructs.

Inside a warehouse, Fischli and Weiss build an enormous and precarious structure made out of common household items such as tea kettles, tires, old shoes, balloons, ladders and wooden ramps. Then, with fire, water, gravity and chemistry, they create a spectacular 100 foot long chain reaction performance of physical interactions, chemical reactions, and precisely crafted chaos worthy of Alfred Hitchcock.

"Comparable to no other film ever made" (Riverfront Times), THE WAY THINGS GO has appeared in hundreds of galleries and museums, and has been applauded by critics worldwide.


Ingeniously choreographed...a Duchampian extravaganza! --New York Times

Dazzling, amazing... downright hypnotic! --Time Out New York

A Rube Goldberg drawing come to life.... how did they do it? --Chicago Tribune
