Photographer's Note

"Hornet (origami)" is a geometric mosaic of tiles by Sarah Morris in Dusseldorf. It measures 7x27 metres and is located on the Paul-Klee-Platz, right behind the K20, Dusseldorf's museum for 20th century art. The mural dates from 2010.

On one of the first sunny days of the year we went on a short trip to Essen and Dusseldorf in the Ruhr-area of Germany. A major exhibition of mainly impressionist paintings in the Folkwang in Essen was a good excuse for a day out and a visit to Dusseldorf too.


Sarah Morris (°1967) is an American artist known for colourful geometric art and has been commissioned to do several in-site installations like this. Her oeuvre includes both paintings and movies.


THIS PICTURE was shot from pretty far away. There's a dark passage which runs underneath the K20 museum (with the entrance on the left). On a dreary day all this is quite dreary, but on a beautiful sunny day this offers exactly the kind of contrast I wanted to go for. Then I just waited for people to walk by.

In the WS there's a wider view of the K20 museum. Maybe you can spot my colourful tunnel view.
