»I am standing on the central area of the Hasenheide road in Berlin Neukoelln and take photos of the approaching traffic. It is currently busy and loud here and some people are crossing the road towards Karstadt, others don't. I chose this location for the photo, because it was here where I was hit by a car 34 years ago. It turned right despite of the red traffic light and hit me. I was 12 years old and was just on the way to the pet department at Karstadt to get water-flees for my fishes. As a result of this accident I became blind. I remember that day as cold and dark. When I am here I always think back at the accident and that I grew up close to the Hermann Platz.«
