In the early 2000s the area around Lehrter Straße, close to the Hamburger Bahnhof museum, was a one of Berlin’s contemporary art hubs, and Olafur Eliasson was one of the artists who rented a studio space there. He piled the garbage he had found in the backyard, and, during winter, watered the pile with a sprinkler system so that it was covered in ice. Eliasson was so taken by the sculpture that he photographed it in the dark, when lamps flooded the strangely appealing structure with mysterious light.
