Crystal City MindDienstag, 19. August 2008
Crystal City Mind is a multi-faceted design object made from high polished high grade steel and matte black surfaces. During the course of this summer COORDINATION and DIEPHOTODESIGNER.DE toured the Berlin inner city with the sizable object, capturing impressions along the former Berlin Wall. The images developed thereby show how rapidly Berlin has evolved in the last 20 years, as living old and new congregate.
Charged with impressions of berlin, Crystal City Mind will now travel the world, radiating these impressions to the cities environment. Crystal City Mind communicates a message from europe’s most demanded city and in addition takes into consideration and mixed past and present. With this, the cooperative venture of COORDINATION and DIEPHOTODESIGNER.DE is symbolic for that which makes the Berlin design scene so unique: The breaks and edges, the interlacing of giving and taking, the old and new, snazzy, charming but incomplete and the desire to constantly change to a different perspective.
