"Bitte Betreten Sie Mich" Interactive / "The present day" Video
The first phase to this project is interactive participation. A blank canvas was taped to the walkway at Berlin Warschauer Straße station. In 30 minutes a random cross section of Berliners walked across it, leaving behind impressions of their footsteps. This effort to capture the fleeting impression of present day Berlin is the foundation of the forth coming images.
