For the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall fall, the historical divide between East and West will be temporarily brought to life using 8,000 luminous ghostly orbs, in a show called ‘Balloon Event Berlin’ or ‘Lichtgrenze’.
As explained by Berlin Wall installation project:
[quote_box_center]From November 7th to 9th 2014, the inner city of Berlin will be temporarily divided from Bornholmer Strasse to Mauerpark and the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse, past the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie to the East Side Gallery: a light installation featuring 8,000 luminous white balloons commemorates the division of Berlin … the installation’s emotional and visual power evokes the dimension and brutality of the Wall.[/quote_box_center]
The biodegradable light-filled balloons will then be released in unison at the end of the weekend, floating away with messages attached by those who choose to contribute. I would really have liked to visit the ghosts of the Berlin Wall, these 8,000 Glowing Orbs Spaning 10 miles in the German capital. Hauntingly beautiful!
