This is the first published image of the artist david K's recent sojourn, which started in Moscow and concluded in Berlin in the fall of 2013.
The 'triptych' simultaneously depicts three significant elements of control from modern history in a single frame: a closed-circuit surveillance camera mounted to the side of the former Nazi Ministry of Aviation (or Reichsluftfahrtministerium), seen through a hole in the still-extant Berlin Wall standing on Wilhelmstrasse.
The physical and psychological weights of stone elements in this work are reminiscent of the title of Dr. Alexei Monroe's monograph Pluralni monolit (Plural Monolith), which served as the photograph's de facto name during processing.
