"I had the idea to illustrate the Ruhr Metropolis myth with unicorns as mythical creatures. The unicorns represent the momentum and strength of structural change in the Ruhr Region. Another connection between unicorns (as horses) and the Ruhr area are pit ponies, which pulled coal cars through the underground for a long time. Like in the past, the unicorns are now pulling the Ruhr structures forward into the future."
