Amazing how much better this looks in the documentation than it did in person. It was also freezing that day. And there seemed to be an awkward technical glitch. And the “exciting” part seemed much shorter than 60 seconds… Hm… Oh, and if I remember correctly, this was also part memorial for Anne d’Harnoncourt…
