‚Pont Bleu – Pause Bleue‘

‚Pont Bleu – Pause Bleue’
Site-specific Light-Object-Installation
© Susanne Kienbaum 2006

Dimensions: Illumination of the Thielen Brücke in Berlin-Kreuzberg in the framework of ’48-Stunden-Neukölln’
Materials: 1600 blue water bottles, 1600 LED light sources, bottle boxes, pillows made from grass tissue, two boats with blue light sources floating in the water

On invitation the Thielen-Brücke was illuminated by 1.600 blue water bottles, to each bottle an LED was connected, 8 bottles filled one bridge segment.

The realization of this installation was inspired by the fact that in this area of Berlin the alcohol problem is evident in public life – interpretation of 1.600 illuminated water bottles could be purely esthetic but an alternative interpretation is the subtle invitation to slow down alcohol consumption in favour of pure, blue water…

During the 48 hours this installation was running it was functioning as a social gathering point  – a lot of pedestrians came and sat down on the bottles boxes, to have a pause, to chat a bit, to drink a bottle of water…
