Aram Bartholl
2011

I ve been looking at these cheaply produced, super low resolution LED signs (the IRL animated gif ;-) for a while already.  End of last year I filmed this meaningfull pair in a kiosk window in Berlin and fell in love with them.  First I used the picture for the SPEED SHOW 5 title in Paris but I had to take it a bit further. :) You find LED signs in any shopping window especially in EU these days. There are also many OPEN signs in US but hardly any INTERNET signs. I had to change that! :)

The OPEN INTERNET intervention was produced during my residency stay at EYEBEAM.

How to save 2,30 € for a latte in Berlin

with one comment

[first released on F.A.T.]

DISCLAIMER: Don’t do this at home …ähhh … at the city trains U-Bahn or S-Bahn. They check those quite often. The bus driver in the city might ask you for a ticket or yell at you but you can always try to just walk in. At Tegel nobody cares AT ALL …. enjoy the coffee places in Berlin! ( That’s all we have ;-)
