This short documents the construction of a precarious 100-foot structure made entirely of common household objects. German artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss use such items as tea kettles, tires, and old shoes to build the piece. Then with fire, water, gravity, and chemistry, they start a spectacular chain reaction of self-destruction. ~ Karla Baker, Rovi
