Alfeld is a small German town located on the Leine river. Approaching to the town of Alfeld, a gigantic chimney appears, which belongs to a paper company, sappi. This industrial chimney is repeatedly viewed from everywhere in the town over roofs or between houses. It looks over-proportioned and almost inappropriate for this old peaceful town. But it‘s unmistakably a monumental landmark of Alfeld and creating a surrealistic mixture of past and present.
