Voices from the Heart

Urban Grafitti is carefully documented and transcribed onto Gingerbread-cookies (Lebkuchenherzen) a traditional and popular Germanic confection. The Cookies are Photographed and re-introduced as Billboards into the public space of Berlins Underground/Subway for a duration of six months.

  1. Grafitti in Berlin's Kreuzberg neighborhood may be seen in such pithy juxtapositions such as these "Love" notes along cemetery walls
  2. Bonjour Tristesse , a novel by the author Françoise Sagan, is taken from a Berlin-Kreuzberg building's facade by the architect Álvaro Siza
  3. Lebkuchenherz (gingerbread-cookie Hearts) hold an indefatigable presence in German culture
