Hotel Berlin, Berlin

For the reopening of Hotel Berlin, I was commissioned, along with 11 other artists, to create a digital artwork for a ca. 32 x 1 m curved LED screen in the hotel lobby. The work is called ‘Kaleidoscopic Wasteland’ and consists of a string of collage material moving against the Berlin skyline. I created the collage by hand, scanned it in and placed it in the background. The animation was done by Oxford House Amsterdam. The results can still be seen in the lobby of Hotel Berlin, Berlin. The last three images are printouts of the artwork that can be seen on one of the floors in the hotel. Scroll down to view some videos of the work.
