Marienstraße 10


In a public space, images are projected directly onto a sidewalk or concrete floor.

The digital projection mixes in with the coarse surfaces upon which we tread. On the ground, tiny inhabitants come and go in what amounts to a trompe l’oeil illusion, a city that seems both to exist within that surface and to float upon it.

Artists: Shelley Eshkar and Paul Kaiser; Sound design: Terry Pender; Additional animation: Keith Chamberlain; Installation Architect: Marco Steinberg; Co-producers: Art Production Fund and Eyebeam
