New Powers

The Geneva trade fair appearance was the last station of the “MINI Big Bang” cycle which began in Paris. The shock waves of the Big Bang weakened, but remained clearly tangible. The hovering cubes from Detroit landed in Geneva and formed clusters on the area of the stand that was to be used as platforms for the presentation of the premiering vehicles. The cubes break open and the energy of these “New Powers” materializes in glowing floors areas and podiums.
