Mehr Licht - Signal Creative

  • Prague, 2020


“Mehr Licht” or “More Light”. That is supposed to be the last words by Johann Wolfgang Goethe. We have prepared another neon installation for Goethe-Institut Prague. The typography of this work, which bears the last words of J. W. Goethe, is inspired by the facade and elements of the Art Nouveau building itself. The object is extra complemented by gobo projection. The temporary neon installation on the Art Nouveau building of the Gothe-Institut in Prague was introduced at a time of heavy coronavirus measures and symbolized a better tomorrow.
