The German verb wandeln may refer to a fundamental transformation — the taking on of another form or shape — but it may also refer to moving forward in slow and measured steps. The Wandelgang walkway within a cloister retains the original meaning: to pace through it is to symbolically undergo a conscious, contemplative life transformation.
These projections in the former inner courtyard of Kloster Fürstenfeld — today the courtyard of the police faculty of the Bavarian technical university for public officials — play with the multiple meanings of this concept, relating it to this location and to its history.
A video animation consisting of intercrossing vertical and horizontal lines composed of the word Wandlung permanently changes the north façade of the monastery church, reminding us of the meaning of the word in a Christian context.
Onto the other facades of this courtyard (used for classes by the technical university) the term Wandlung is projected as a static texture.
This is not merely an optical alteration to the architecture and to the plants of the courtyard — the visitor is written on also, and the visitor's appearance also changes in the light of the projection.
