The City awakes, a building sees. An office development which towers over Berlin historic part around the Oberbaum bridge becomes the face of the metropolis with the eyes of its inhabitants. People are invited to look into a box in which two cameras are filming their eyes. The images are projected live onto two windows of the office tower across.
The installation is located at a neuralgic location of Berlin’s history. Oberbaum bridge used to demarcate the border between East and West Germany. The former Narva bulb factory represents the failure of the eastern economy and new developments located on its former grounds, such as the glass tower, are symbolic for the processes that shape the Berlin of today. Omnivisu seeks to ask about the role of a city’s inhabitants within these developments.
Omnivisu is a TheGreenEyl project.
