About the work Teufelsberg We are in the forest of Grunewald west of Berlin. Here lies Teufelsberg or the Devils mountain, Berlins highest mountain built out of 4000 000 buildings that was bombed to pieces during the war. The hillsides are now roamed by Wild bores and when they rummage around the earth around old parts of the city re-surface among the leaves. On the top, the American army built an old radar station during the cold war. Today it is subject to a number of creative forces. Street art, open air parties, film shoots and concerts take place among the buildings in a kind of free zone outside the regulations of the structured city. Every day, new images, messages and text appear and are painted over in a stream of consciousness that echoes the flow of digital media of today. In the same manor, I have used multiple photos and photographic techniques to make one large image out of the many shots. Some of the images where found online, taken from the creative commons, from blogs, photo essays, and panoramic inventories. I make images and films from hundreds of photos that makes up a single whole. This place is ideal for me since it’s so intrinsically layered. It is one of the most important urban spaces, a focal point of numerous urgent questions about what we build around us and why.
