Christo at Gasometer

“Big Air Package”

We visited the Gasometer in Oberhausen Germany, where Christo has erected an enormous package. Yep. Some huge volume of air supports quilted fabric constrained by rope ties. We walked inside and out, and underneath where a camera from the very top films visitors inside and projects the image at the very base. The building itself was pretty spectacular too, and unlike anything that we would ever allow back home. Girders and catwalks abound, and provide contrast and access to the light package. Here come the pictures.IMG_1902IMG_1883IMG_1900IMG_1893IMG_1890IMG_1892IMG_1876IMG_1877
