They were here. A light installation with 40 astral bodies

The environmental object which is subtitled “They were here”, makes the departed visible. Artist Alexander Reichstein is convinced that people never disappear without trace: we continue to hear their words, steps and even their breath. People who are long-gone, wander through the garden, meet each other and blend into the environment in the image of 40 astral bodies
