    Crowd takes over
    After the Checkpoint collapsed exactly twenty years after the Berlin Wall came down, visitors rummaged through all the remaining debris and carried out lots of painted bricks and brain parts into the cold Berlin night. Photo by Just / Just.Ekosystem.org. under creative commons by nc nd 3.0.

  • Dadara- Spotlight
    Spotlight
    Adding finishing touches to the lighting. The lighting of the watchtower being a bit more subtle than all the 500 W constructionlights shining into the pool itself.

    12 times 500 Watts. Big Brother needs a lot of light when he is watching you.
  • Dadara- Building the Watch Tower
    Building the Watch Tower
    During a preparatory visit to Berlin earlier during the year we took measurements of the whole pool, but forgot to measure how high the ceiling was. Luckily it all fit perfectly, but twenty centimeters higher and there would have been a problem. Well deserved luck I guess.
  • Dadara- Slide Prevent Construction
    Slide Prevent Construction
    Because of the sloping surface of the pool a special construction had to be built to prevent the whole checkpoint from sliding down and collapsing before it was meant to collapse. Rob Kreke and DOk van Winsen were a perfect team with both brains and skills to figure it all out.
