Elisabeth was interested in creating a specific church window glow inside the building. To achieve this, she had 34 rolls-worth of Supergel applied to the atrium's 150 m2 glass ceiling. When the installation was complete, 693 rectangles of color filter were individually affixed onto the glass ceiling by hand.
In an interview for Baukunstarchiv NRW Elisabeth said: “We fitted the ceiling construction from above with special colour filters like those used in the film industry because there are extreme temperature fluctuations up there and normal films can't withstand that. I also wanted the special church-window glow of the colours, which can only be achieved with film filters."
Lighting Designer Raffael Pollak and Sales Manager Daniel Jurkic at Rosco dealer Dedo Weigert Film worked with Elisabeth to provide the following Supergel rolls:
#R26 Light Red – 15 rolls
#R24 Scarlet – 15 rolls
#R52 Light Lavender – 2 rolls
#R53 Pale Lavender – 2 rolls
In addition to the chromatic ceiling, 21 aluminum frames lined with mirror foil were integrated into the soffits of the atrium. This created an infinite reflection of the colored glass ceiling from different perspectives. In an interview before the exhibition opened, Elisabeth said: “The atrium will be completely empty. But it will glow! And it reflects! You will see movement in the room where there is none, only your own.”
