While I was in LA, jaunting around for the afternoon the other month, I stumbled across a really cool Installation! In the middle of beautiful LA lies actual pieces of the Berlin Wall (10 to be exact), its over forty feet wide and is the longest stretch of the Wall outside of Germany! This installation is titled "The Wall Project" and is Presented by The Wende Museum. It was designed in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Local LA Artists: Kent Twitchell, Farrah Karapetian and Marie Astrid Gonzalez. They also worked alongside Thierry Noir, a Berlin based murialist who was the first one to paint on the Berlin Wall in 1984. These four worked together to create art reflecting real and imagined divisions. There are four segments of the wall that contain actual graffiti from Cold War era Berlin.
I found this so culturally awesome! Each section of the wall had a completely different color story and feel to it. I had the same outfit on (a favorite go to tee of mine), but we shot in two different sections of the wall, and the looks ending up having such different vibes to them. The first was a little more bland in the color palette but was stronger in tone. While the second set had bolder colors and brought an entirely different feel the the pics!
I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
