When the sun shines on the Berlin Fernsehturm’s tiled stainless steel dome, the reflection usually appears in the form of a cross. This effect was not anticipated by the Swedish architects. Berliners nicknamed the luminous cross ‘Rache des Papstes’, or the Pope’s Revenge.
For Equinox, I encircled the TV tower from sunrise to sunset following the sun’s reflection on the tower. I took a picture on every point of view where the tower was visible.
A 12 hour day is reduced to 22 seconds. The tower seems to revolve around itself.
