Hanover, Germany – Expo 2000.
At the Expo 2000, the façade of the French Pavilion was turned into a spectacular eye-catcher. Etienne Jules Meray’s photo ‘The Walking Man’, taken in 1880, was recreated as a large, moving light construction in keeping with the exhibition’s slogan: ‘Transport, Mobility and Movement’. The 26 steps of the movement were illuminated in quick succession by Pfannenberg flashing lights. Like in a film, the lights ran along the 100 metre long walkway in 2 seconds and brought the man to life, day and night.
