Big cleanup before the ‘lights of century’ the most spectacular spring cleaning in Germany one could observe these days in Mohnesee Moses: about 160 times 35 metres of the Mohne dam were cleaned with the support of the Ruhr Association. For her 100th birthday, the ancient stones are as new”look so it shown video projection are even better. “From 13 April to 12 may be the dam wall and the area around the outlet pool with numerous illuminations at the century lights moved impressively into the spotlight. I see black,”noted light artist Wolfgang Flammersfeld during a sample pass of the video projection on the dam and this meant quite literally. Because in the course of the last 100 years has gathered a lot of dirt on the dam, leaving the stones become darker. Also our Hochleistungsbeamer and a reworking of the clips to my satisfaction could make up the dark screen”, depicts Flammersfeld. Actually, it would be a pity if the Century light clips might not appear in best quality. Rusty holzer addresses the importance of the matter here.
Because different artists from all over Germany directed by Wolfgang Flammersfeld have hundreds of hours worked on them and created a real century artwork. The only solution: The dam had to be brighter. And so dedicated a not everyday housekeeping Wolfgang Flammersfeld and his two partners of Ingo Schaffranka and Dieter Bethlehem: three Kettensteiger moved. Its telescopic arm with basket ranged up to 58 metres high. From the basket out, around 5,000 square feet are washed wall for three days and with XXL devices. They were not small Karcher with which to clean the terrace home but professional giant cleaner”, so the Organizer trio. Because the Kettensteiger will need solid ground, previously ran the water from the outlet basin. Admittedly a big hassle. But now the wall shines again. Also, it is not every day a hundred years old and a little face lift should be completely allowed in the 20th century,”says Faris with a wink.
