A word-light installation for the 300th birthday anniversary of Frederick the Great. Using lasers, the poems of the Prussian king were projected on to the facades of the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Altes Palais. Artistic direction: Gabriele von Kardorff
The installation began on January 24, 2012, the 300th birthday of Frederick the Great, and ended on January 29, 2012, after the night-long opening of the museums.

Four yellow high-performance lasers projected the poems onto the facades according to a precisely set choreography. 60,000 pulses per second allowed fully legible sentences to appear out of the individual points of light.
