Berlin Wall 25-Years Later
Germany will celebrate the 25th anniversary of tearing down the infamous Berlin Wall, a 10 mile concrete and barbed wire structure built in 1961 to divide the city with an installation of 8,000 glowing white balloons that will be set up for two days.
Light artist Christopher Bauder and filmmaker Marc Bauder designed ‘Lichtgrenze’ to commemorate the reunification of the city. Writes MyModernMet:
At six key locations along the route, Lichtgrenze will display historical footage of life during the Berlin Wall’s presence. Visitors will also find that every 500 feet features personal stories and memories of people who lived on both sides of barrier, or whose lives were affected by it in some way.
Patrons of the balloons will attach personal messages to the glowing orbs, then send the dazzling, biodegradable display into the night sky at 7pm on November 9. ‘Lichtgrenze’ will go live in the middle of the night on November 7.
