DER RETTUNGSRING is designed as an experimental feature: it is an attempt to built a floating structure – to bring together the two elements of air and water. The Odyspree 2010 - a creative storytelling boat trip - is a live performance, initiated by treibhaus 08. On the 'Island of Youth' in Berlin Treptow, plastique fantastique dropped his RETTUNGSRING (lifebuoy) and placed it around a tree. The red and white sculpture semi-floated on the Spree River. It was widely visible as the "redeeming shore sign" for the "Spree-Odyssee voyagers". Once inside of the structure, the visitors enjoyed the full experience of walking, sitting and relaxing on the water.
