The idea was to create a “pearl chain of light” by eight bridges in the City West of Berlin. One of these bridges crosses the Bleibtreustrasse. The lighting in the shape of a circle dynamically clings to the bridge construction and visually enhances the space under the bridge. The installation reacts to pedestrians and traffic, creating a playful interactivity with lighting which becomes perceptible in the form of color and rhythm changes. Interactivity with pedestrians is the core idea of the project. It is controlled by four motion sensors which are installed above the sidewalk in the “entrance areas” and trigger the corresponding light sequences.
