Project for Licht-Brücken [bridges of light] 2002, Erfurt
A video sequence is projected onto the open side of the half-closed wooden balcony of the Krämerbrücke [grocer’s bridge, a famous Erfurt landmark], i.e. onto the Northern side facing upriver. The video shows a sequence of faces in front of a red background blowing kisses to passers-by. The arches of the bridge supporting the balcony are illuminated with red light. Spectators can watch the kissers and their reflections on the water from different viewing points alongside both shores. The kisses send greetings out to the world, establishing virtual bridges between people.
