Opening in Berlin

After one and a half years my and Jinran's façade work for the new GLS Campus building is being inaugurated. Without me, unfortunately, I am over in Korea teaching, but still it is a relief. The installation features an illuminated cornice feature I am particularly proud of. The idea came to me in the middle of the night and now it is permanently installed on a façade on one of the most popular streets of the new Berlin, Kastanienallee!
What I love about this work is its simplicity and mutability. You can put any six-letter message you want up there, but only a few will really work. I chose 'Dasein' for the opening, a nice jibe and parry for the German context.

I'll put some photos of the opening up soon.
