In 2010 began in the city of Waiblingen, south of Germany, the construction of new buildings that would change the skyline of the city. During the construction period of time I observed and documented this temporary horizons that dominate the city for one and a half year.
At the end of the XIX century, the horizons line of the cities became the name of skyline. This change of name is bound to other changes like the change of high and the change of body position if one wants to observe it from the inside of the city- one has to turn the neck up.
The new horizon is not natural but constructed and during the period of its construction, the space resides between an imaginary projection condition of what it would be and a condition that reminds what it was.
During this period of time it is difficult to perceive the present of the space that seems to have an invisible poster that says: “Don’t look. It is not finished yet”.
