Momentum Wehrhahn Reflecteed
Art has been playing a vital role in the public realm for centuries. Everybody can experience works of art when they are displayed publicly, and intentionally as well as deliberately connected in communal public spaces (urban parks, on streets or squares, etc.).
The design concept of the 6 new subway stations was already developed during the planning phase and in collaboration with architects, artists, engineers, and city council. This resulted in 6 new subway stations where art is inseparably and deliberately connected with and integrated into the public realm. These public artworks can now be experienced every day and have become the public’s daily companion.
Reflection Art Photography is the photographer Nik Pichler’s art form, which portrays multi-layered issues in extraordinary pictures. The art project “Momentum Wehrhahn” was inspired by light, art, dynamics, and space. With his technique – the Reflection Art Photography – Nik Pichler merges traffic, people, art, light, dynamics, and space. Reflecting surfaces of buildings become the motive’s backdrop and create a visibly impossible link between a wide range of realities. They represent a subterranean world that combines traffic, people, art, light, dynamics, and space. They inspire people and invite them to refuse the mundane and reinterpret it again and again.
