Good things come to those who wait

The art installation "Public Face" had already been delivered to us at the end of October 2011. Thus, the huge wooden box remained unopenend for almost 6 months. The delay was due mainly to the cold weather, the definition of the exact location, structural and other problems.

 

But in early May it started to come together. Julius von Bismarck, Benjamin Maus und Richard Wilhelmer worked continuously on the smiley - welding, wiring, or the renewal of neon lights were among the main tasks. On 24th of May the installation of 700 kg was positioned by a huge crane on the elevator house at 40 m height. With the help of an industrial climber the smiley was then properly attached. On 2nd of June the official inauguration took place with an artist talk and now the 8m steel face will grace our roof for one year.
