    In 2016 the artist Rainer Gottemeier stands in front of the light installation "Lichtachsen reloaded" along the former wall line at the Heilandskirche in Sacrow, a district of Potsdam.
At Berlin's East Side Gallery, within sight of the Oberbaumbrücke bridge, light artist Rainer Walter Gottemeier is installing an approximately 150-meter-long light axis consisting of floating, luminous rod and signal buoys in the Spree. The 50 neon rod buoys and numerous flashing signal rescue lamps and their reflections are intended to symbolize a border line between Kreuzberg (formerly West Berlin) and Friedrichshain (formerly East Berlin). The light installation «What is here now, what once was here» can best be viewed from the shore of the East Side Gallery.
