The Alpine Ruin was created in 2011 after emigrating to Switzerland. While watching Lars von Trier's Dogville, the artist misunderstood the new language he was to learn, hearing something about an Alpine Ruin instead of the Alpenglühen - the term given to the effect of red light observed after sunset or before sunrise over a mountain scape.
