The SAMMELSTELLE (COLLECTION POINT) light installation links
Behrens‘s work with linoleum as a material with the projection
location, the former Nordwolle factory turbine hall, with its historical
function as a power station and its current use as an industrial
Linoleum is interpreted as a storage device for energy and ideas, in
brief, as a pool for material and intellectual production, because of
its functional and creative potential.
During the day, a collection of about 100 fictitious typographical
patterns is projected on the hall‘s rear projection wall, in an endless
loop. They are created simply by modifying textual material, using
spacing, leading etc.
Selected structures in the form of individual projections develop an
intimate dialogue with architecture and technology on the basis of
this specimen pool.
The entire space becomes a typographical collection point, a power
station, an energy store.
