+ A Laborious Romance

We're All Gonna Die - 100 Meters of Existence is a project by Simon Høgsberg [Hoegsberg] who spend 20 days in Summer 2007 photographing people on a railway bridge on Warschauer Strasse. The image is 100m × 78cm and there are 178 people in the image [Høgsberg, 2010].

Høgsberg, who received "surprisingly positive" feedback for his exhibition online, is planning an exhibit the work in full length in a public square in Copenhagen, and "in the coming weeks I’ll be very receptive to all sorts of small impressions which – I’m sure – I will gladly invite inside and let myself be influenced by" [Høgsberg, in Rowse, 2010].
