Located in front of the new headquarters of the Robert Koch Institute, the installation is a self-generative video projected onto a 6.5 meter high concrete construction. The computer animated image source, programmed to infinitely generate images and patterns, gives the work an ever-changing appearance. The projection can be viewed daily after dark.
