Reconstructing the Wall which once divided Berlin into two political worlds
In the reality the tracks of the Berlin Wall have been long disappeared, but not in the hearts of people. So it's not a surprise that visitors from home and abroad, and even Berlin citizens, increasingly put the question "where's been the legendary wall located?" It shows, the wall in fact is still present with the people. The answer on the question will give the first presentation this summer, which will be shown on a life-sized computer aided silver screen (3m/4m in size).
By presenting the VR-artwork the intention of the artists is to attract the sensual and physical perception of the human beings. Using an easy to handle joystick every visitor can move through the interactive 3D-world of the VR-artwork. In August 2008 a presentation will take place in the museum for Communication in Berlin and in the Center of Documentation "Berlin Wall in the Bernauer Street". Further events are scheduled in Germany and abroad.

As consultants are engaged Dr. John Czaplicka, from the Harvard Center for European Studies and - last but not least - The Goethe Institut - Bosten/USA.
