Down in the distance by the river there is this man. He has been pacing back and forth for the past hour, throwing his body around in erratic turbulent motions. I’m assuming he’s drunk or on something. He looks out of place, out of it and out of here, his movements are distressed. He’s holding a drink; I assume it’s alcoholic. Although inebriated and outstanding his display is composed; it can be tracked down to a rhythm and described.
Described like this:
1.) He walks first in slow circles, face focussed on feet. Marching long-legged and dangling-armed.
2.) He sends himself into another motion; a vigorous array of air kicks and air punches as if to disconnect his limbs from his frame and propel them into the Spree.
He pauses, but never stands still before approaching the cyclone again.
Another round for the drunken helicopter.
Over the year the wasteland seems to be occupied by more and more people. The cameras almost out number the dogs.
Documentation takes place daley basis; phographing graffiti, using the site as a stage: for a film, music video, fashion shoot, skateboard section, a performance, conducting an interview etc. This space can be seen as a typical edgy urban backdrop, flexible and generic. This space joins the ‘alternative’ Berlin tour amongst tofelsberg and the spree park. Part of the Disneyland of sub cultural spaces.
