tail of the pup:

I took these photos during a short residency in Berlin, staying at the Studio Lichtenberg last year. I made the object out of weatherproofed yellow gabardine and synthetic leather and it is based on the district of Lichtenberg's coat of arms. I then started exploring the district on my bike or on the S-Bahn, taking the "Lichtenberger sun" everywhere I went. I took these photographs of the object whenever I found an interesting place or situation.

I (literally) sewed the sun and it was a lot of fun walking around with the sun on my back.
