Artist's description:

I crossed Checkpoint Charlie every day for a period whilst in Berlin shortly before the wall came down in 1989, and the police controls which this depicts was a familiar experience. This image uses the pixelation of a television screen shot, which was then divided into five separate colours, working from the abstract background pattern of pink and yellow lights and working towards the foreground image of the border guard. The last colour, a tan brown was used solely for the reflected face of the driver, just visible in the wing mirror, looking past the guard at us, the spectator, and leading us into the picture space.
