Long Description:
Windbaum ("Wind Tree") is a stainless steel windkinetic sculpture by artist Johannes Dinnebier, located in front of the entrance of Galerie Luise shopping mall in Luisenstrasse. It is about 10 meters tall and consists of about 15 concave-shaped elements pivoted on top of each other about a vertical axis. Since these elements differ in size, weight and probably friction, each is affected differently by the wind, resulting in a constantly changing appearance of the structure as the wind goes.

Der Windbaum ist eine windkinetische Edelstahlskulptur des Künstlers Johannes Dinnebier und steht vor dem Eingang der Galerie Luise in der Luisenstraße. Sie ist ungefähr 10 Meter hoch und besteht aus etwa 15 konkav geformten Einzelelementen, die entlang einer vertikalen Achse drehbar übereinander angeordnet sind. Da sie sich in Größe, Gewicht und vermutlich auch Reibung voneinander unterscheiden, reagieren sie je verschieden auf den Wind, was zu einem sich ständig verändernden und niemals gleichen Erscheinungsbild führt.
