Final day of Berlin and Pictoplasma

So the final day's brought sun and exploration as head hit up the last of the talks and screenings and took advantage of the good weather by heading in the cultural districts of Berlin.
We visited the East Side Gallery where 1km of the original Berlin wall stands in the shadows of an O2 arena big enough to house all of Justin Bieber's twitter fans. I slightly ironic salute to the extent of development to the area in just over 20 years.
Following this we spent time wandering the streets of east Berlin, finding little bike shops and floating bars all drenched in the beautiful afternoon sun, a sun that we had been massively lacking over previous days.

The final night of the festival brought about the final performance, marking the end of the festival for 2011. A 2 hour show entitled The Missing Link focused on the subject of this years event. Beautifully crafted yeti's prancing and masturbating on stage were followed by some incredible live music visual displays as well as some not so incredible piano playing and singing (I say singing, I mean moaning).

The after-after party went on into the night and saw the big names mingling with the audience until the early hours. A fitting end to a mixed bag for this years Pictoplasma festival.
