For the 25 Jahre Mauerfall, the production
team asked spatial designer
Christiaan Bakker and me to pitch an alternative
proposal, to the one proposed by their
original architect, for a display that
would run alongside the 15km long light
installation that followed the same track as
the former Berlin Wall. On the site specific
displays they would print stories and
images from the Berlin wall.
We were asked specifically to work with the temporary nature of the exhibition; in our design, budget, and production. Starting from the modular principle of a street blockade, we designed a dynamic system that could adapt to the ±150 individual sites. In addition to the rentable metal legs, we would print 2 × 1m wooden panels with two different layouts. The graphic design of the panels had already been made, and our task was to create a dynamic modular system within the constraints of the design. After printing, the wooden panel could be cut up and assembled in multiple ways. In this manner, the display could be adjusted to any location.
