Over the past 1 1/2 years British artist Antony Gormley has prepared an exhibition at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Europe’s biggest space for contemporary art. Rather than following through with the proposed retrospective, Gormley decided creating a huge interactive sculpture that only comes alive by the participation of the visitors. To enforce his point Gormley accomplished to keep the exhibition that runs until 9th of September 2012 free of charge.

The sculpture itself stretches over 1200m2 big and weighs 67 tons. One single person can make it vibrate, by walking, running or jumping. The experience is enhanced by the reflecting ground which makes a gigantic mirror. A dedicated website allows visitors uploading their own photos of the art work which then appear in a blog.
