The place is outside: MEGA

Artist: Mari Keski-Korsu
Project Overview
Cartographers have mistakenly titled a place near Ahrensfelde as "MEGA" on a Falke staplan. The place is located in the district of Eiche, north of Berlin-Hellersdorf. Two open workshops, that took place there, dealt with how a place gets an identity and how people create landscapes. Together with the artist and the curator, they designed and build a permanent work of art in public space.

An old GDR Mill stockpile was chosen by the people of Eice where a panoramic permant platform was build, taking the identity of MEGA. Locals, the artist and the curator were involved in constructing the platform, which is still maintained by the municipality of Eiche.
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
