Opening Public Face Hafencity Hamburg

From November 2018, “Imagine the City” will complement urban development in HafenCity with several long-term projects that will occupy various locations.

The first project reacts directly to urban space: what is the mood like in HafenCity? The sculpture “Public Face” by the artists Julius von Bismarck, Benjamin Maus and Richard Wilhelmer on the Kibbelstegbrücke bridge gives answers: the seven-meter-high smiley made of steel and neon tubes is connected to security cameras in public space via a software and reflects people's collective feelings in real time.
