The power of light

The power of light to change the urban environment was used to great effect over the weekend as Berliners marked 25 years since the fall of the infamous wall.

The wall which had become a marker of the divide between capitalism and communism was a dark physical divide cutting right through the middle of a major city.

To mark the anniversary, artists Christopher and Marc Bauder and studio Whitevoid created the Lichtgrenze (border of light), an urban installation of light and balloons to recreate and light the wall’s path.

It was a beautiful reminder of how far things have come and a stunning display of the power light can have in changing an urban environment at night.
