Conceived for the 300th anniversary festivities of the City of Karlsruhe, Jesper Wachtmeister’s installation Reflections is a video projection on the Karlsruhe Castle with scenes inspired by Superstudio and Lebbeus Wood.

The first part of Jesper Wachtmeister’s installation Reflections – held at the Palace Garden, for the the 300th anniversary festivities of the City of Karlsruhe – addresses through scenes inspired by Superstudio and Lebbeus Woods the transformation and regeneration of the Palace facade; the architecture appears to be scarred and broken open.
But these visual wounds of time heal and close back up until the Palace shines in new splendor. 
The audience is then offered the opportunity to speak with each other about the Palace facade. Thoughts, greetings, and wishes are communicated by text message and projected onto the façade in the form of speech bubbles. Particular ways of writing can influence the form of the speech bubbles. A question mark at the end of the message, for example, generates a “thought bubble,” while writing in capital letters creates what is called a “scream bubble.”
