images" moves New York to Berlin. The lively and always hectic
bundle of New York lifestyles, the irresistible New Yorkers, the noise,
the everpresent insomnia, the sometimes comforting and sometimes inhuman
anonymity - that's the focus of this project.
This huge installation aims
to capture the spirit and to allow visitors to experience the speed
and unpredictability of New York. Each screen on the ground imbues
a unique chapter of the New York story. One of the screens tells
the story of dog parks, a place where only dogs and their owners
are allowed. - The visitors, presented with a grid of screens that
resemble New York's streets and avenues, is the accidental architect
of a dynamic, colorful, ever-changing and noisy version of New York.
16 slide projectors cast more
than 1.000 photographs onto the ground, covering an area of 600sq.m.
Each projector is equipped with a sensor that responds to even the
tiniest movements of the visitor walking on the photographs projected
onto the ground. With each movement a new photograph and a new corresponding
soundbite appear. The visitors have no control; all they can do
is explore the projection and surrender to the pace of the city.
- Just like you have to do when you want to become part of New York.
