“WHERE YOU AT” is the title of Paul Snowden his show at Galerie Sandra Bürgel in Berlin. Paul is a Berlin based art director from New Zealand. You might know his fashion project Wasted German Youth or some of his other designs. Some consider him the personification of the Futura font. I just like this gravestone, which is in Helvetica for a change. 5 characters are enough. AMEN to that.
You can go and see his work till March 21th.

Yesterday evening was the Berlin edition of the adidas House Party to celebrate the 60th birthday of adidas. It took place at the adidas No 74 Concept store. The shop was completly redecorated to fit the house party theme. There was no bar where you could get a drink, you just had to go to kitchen and fix yourself a drink. There were also regular pizza deliveries. It felt like a real house party. Of course the music was top notch too. It was a blast.
Besides the party, adidas organized a special sale yesterday. They sold 2500 pair of adidas Consortiums and adidas Originals sneakers for the amazing price of 20 euros a pair. This offer drew a huge crowd, but it went down in orderly way, you were only allowed to buy 3 pairs. The sales started at noon but there were still people waiting in line till very late in the evening.
I can only hope that this was just the start of adidas 60th birthday celebrations!
A room is filled with deep, evolving noises from a four-channel sound system. An eight-by-eight array of white, self-illuminated spheres floats in space like the atoms of a complex molecule.
Through variable positioning and illumination of each atom, a dynamic display sculpture comes into being, composed of physical objects, patterns of light, and synchronous rhythmic and textural sonic events. Change, sound, and movement converge into a larger form.
The height of the helium balloons is adjusted with a computer-controlled cable, whilst the internal illumination is accomplished using dimmable super-bright LEDs, creating a pixel in a warped 8×8 spatial matrix.
The sonic events, the patterns of light, and the movement of the balloons are manipulated in real time as a 45-60 minute-long performance.
Berlin Says is a performance by Nasan Tur. Hundreds of graffiti collected from the facades of Berlin, sprayed onto one wall over and over again.
Larissa Fassler made this cardboard model of the publicly accessible areas of the mega housing estate, the Zentrum Kreuzberg, in Berlin. She has built the negative volumes, the tunnels of the metro station and the space between the facades. The model measures 3m x 3m x 1.35m.
Kotti is the nickname of this area, the metro station is called Kottbusser Tor. You won’t find many tourists here.
A month ago, we came back from a weekend in Belgium and we landed in Berlin Tempelhof. We knew it would be our last flight to Tempelhof, our beloved airport. That’s why we took this crappy picture.
Today are the last flights from and to Tempelhof, unfortunately the Berlin parliament decided to close it. I’m going to miss the 10 minutes taxi rides from and to the airport, the lack of shops, the architecture.
