The A100 is not just an infrastructural system occupying expanses of urban space, it is also a city-building force with massive physical, media and political presence. It generates a pulse of city life. It exerts influence over Berlin identity as a symbol of progress, of self-promotion and representation, while also being a reviled object, a disruptive element, and an art space.

After many hours hearing the A100

It makes the city pulse Coloured in greys An object with characteristics + dynamics seasons + routines rushes + accidents It divides, builds boundaries, occupies territory. It is two-faced and multi-directional. It dreams, arranges, progresses. It enables and connects. It is massive. It is experience. It screams. It erases. Composed of unwalkable expanses. Hear it roar and roar and roar…
