Berlin Wall in Silverlight

Sign in to queue


In case you missed it last month, the world celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. To memorialize this historic event, a digital project has been created whose goal is to become the largest photo mosaic in the world. Called the BerlinMOSAIC, the project is a virtual art activity created by Sascha Ackermann and Lars Beckmann. To participate, everyone worldwide is encouraged to upload their own photos to the project by tagging them with “20jmf” on photo-sharing sites Picasa or Flickr or by including “#20jmf” on any Twitter update linking to a TwitPic you want to include. Another option is to manually upload photos directly through the website itself. (Here's how).

The end result is a virtual manifestation of the wall’s fall created with the thousands of pictures added by the community. Since the site uses Silverlight, you can zoom in and out and move all around the wall using the built-in controls.

You can check out the Berlin Wall mosaic on either of the two sites hosting it - here or here.
