»On a stretch of 2 kilometers, seven inner city situations will be doubled on Potsdamer Straße, which was once representational for the city of Berlin and is today used very heterogeneously. On selected points of the whole street, “doubles” will appear at an interval of 70 cm from the existing objects, as if a tracing-paper duplication of a map of the city had slipped a bit away from the original beneath it. The focus thereby will be on easily overlooked street furnishings like streetlights, bus stops, and clocks.« Realtime by inges idee.

Skeleton Coast

By the 1980s, the island of Margarita in Venezuela transfigured its landscape with a number of unfinished construction projects. Lots of them have become part of daily life. Alexander Apóstol has documented the effects in his slightly weird series »Skeleton Coast«.

RoboKopter

Video surveillance remains one of the most expanding fields in public space. Especially at demonstrations everyone monitors each and every step. Newly also from the bird’s-eye view: Videodrohnen für Demonstranten. In spite of that, the question remains open: who is filming whom? The RoboKopter footage probably defines the future of protest documentation. Soon in HD.
