Berlin – Molecule Man.

A long exposure of the Berlin Molecule Man, a huge aluminium sculpture on the Spree River designed by American artist Jonathan Borofsky and installed in 1997.

“For me, this hundred-foot tall aluminum sculpture composed of three figures meeting in the center, not only refers to the lightness inside our own solid bodies, but also the figures joining in the center, refer to the molecules of all human beings coming together to create our existence. This symbolism is especially poignant for this 100-foot Molecule Man on the Spree River in Berlin since the river marked the division between East and West Berlin.”
