Project Description


Colour prints

An abandoned housing complex at the entrance to Weimar is re-animated by colourful lights: almost invisible during day, shining widely at night.

The derelict rooms of the building are equipped with neon-lights of different colours, that go on and off irregularly, forming changing light patterns on the facade. For a moment it seems as if the former inhabitants have returned. But at second glance the run-down state of the interior unmasks itself.

On show in Weimar every night from July 1st to 18th, 2004.

The series of photgraphs documents the original light installation and becomes a work of art itself.

17 digital fotos, 50 cm x 74 cm,mounted on MDF. Exhibited at »Neue Heimlichkeiten«, »Homely Truths« at Gallery Sleeping Dogs, Berlin 25th of November until 22nd of December 2005.
