This is a window of a subway wagon in Berlin. For a long time I was bothered by the fact, that it is no longer possible to look out the window properly due to the adhesive foil sticking on the windows which is used to keep off graffiti writers from smearing the subway windows. Dealing with this problem, I have attached a cutter on a string to cut a circle out of the foil. During a few stops I looked out of the window, through the hole and into the subway tunnel. Then I simply removed the window and took it home.
