Wasserfall (waterfall / 2014–2018)  is a 2-channel video projection as well as a longterm photography project around and about an artificial waterfall in the city centre of Munich, laid out in the year 1800. A rapidly flowing canal, boulders, old trees, and the picturesque waterfall create a seemingly wild scenery – reminiscent of historical landscape paintings – that magically attracts locals as well as tourists. The scenery seems like a theatre play with ever-changing actors in a never changing script: Bodies of swimmers float with dizzying speed through the canal, while a concrete wall in the middle allows walking on water. At the edge of the canal, passerby stare, pose and take photographs. Alternating between contemplative as well as short video sequences, the projection shows a choreography of human behaviour and universal movements.
