Fabian Gatermann Illuminates the Metro with “City Light Charts”


At this year’s Frankfurt light festival, Fabian Gatermann illuminated the “Schweizer Platz“ metro station with his “City Light Charts” installation.

The advertising spaces in the metro were replaced with Fabian Gatermann’s light works.


The pieces were made with special computer algorithms and sequencing, and they were inspired by stock exchange charts, including cryptocurrency and oil charts, and were meant to convey an analogy of emotional pull.


He stated the following regarding the installation:

“I was extremely interested in how I can create the maximum difference between the charts and courses and their displayed content. I wanted to generate a space between emotion, fascination and alienation.”
