Poster for the acclaimed video installation by the American artist Bill Viola, which is regarded worldwide as a pioneer in the field of new media art. The ‘Five Angels for the Millennium’ in the Gasometer in Oberhausen formed a spherical dialogue with these large industrial cathedral. Never before was the installation of Viola screened with images between 40 and 210 feet in such an area with steel walls.
In addition, the sounds in the great acoustics of the Gasometer gave a presumption of infinity.
