Heilstätten Beelitz, 04. Dezember 2009
- Heilstätten Beelitz is an abandoned hospital in the outback of Berlin, built around 1900.
I had the idea of putting a gramophone inside. A tiny bit of life inside of these comfortless, dead walls.
Fortunately I had some nice company to bring the stuff and spend some time there. :]
First of all I wanted to take pictures of it, but was also stunned by the idea of just letting the music play. So this is some footage to remember the atmosphere. Strange, beautiful and scary at the same time.
The song is by Mimi Thoma, a famous german singer back then, called "Sonne wird scheinen." The first Refrain goes "Sonne wird scheinen, und ich werde weinen, weil ich verlassen bin", which means: "Sun will shine, and I will cry, cause I'm left behind."
