As though inspired by a magical lagoon that changes from turquoise to pink and back again, Peter Zimmermann has layered the floor of an art gallery with layers of resin materials. The artist's work essentially uses an unorthodox canvas, which encourages people to view his work from a completely different perspective. It also interacts with the other art in the gallery stunningly be reflecting them on the ground.

Taking place at the Museum für Neue Kunst in Freiburg, Germany, Peter Zimmermann's exhibit has been dubbed Freiburg School. He notes, "The fact that visitors actually walk on it necessarily means that the surface will get scratched, destroyed. It develops a kind of patina as a result. Trainers leave scuff marks, high heels leave scratches. All of which are all interesting relicts…. I think that these traces correspond to the brush strokes of the oil paintings."
