"Omnia mutantur, nihil interit" "Everything changes, nothing passes"
This quote from the Metamorphoses by Publius Ovidius Naso (Ovid) accompanies the pupils on their daily journeys throughout the school. A tilting image in two directions on the slats of the suspended ceiling of the school corridor connecting all the rooms captivates the passers by on their way there in the German translation, on their way back in the Latin original.

A piece of wasteland purchased for the school is being left to wild growth of scrub and trees over the years. Every day at 12.00 noon, a self-sufficient SLR camera on a pole sends an image of this piece of initially fallow land to the school server. There it is added to the previous shot images by a programme so that a time-lapse film of the growth on the observed piece of land is beeing created over the years. This is permanently shown on a monitor next to the stand-in schedule screens.
