Diorama Wunderkammer of Berlin 2019

Diorama / Wunderkammer of Berlin
Artist: Astrid Rave
Manufacturer: Mertin’s Idea Workshop Size: 260 x 170 x 54 mm
In a miniature factory in Neukölln, Berlin street scenes are reproduced as diorama in three-dimensional work according to the ideas of the sculptor and occupational therapist Astrid Rave. Astrid Rave works in the area of ​​Berlin psychiatry.
The design of the sculpture is the compensation to the job. On many walks, she is inspired by the city’s vibrancy and thus strives to translate her own madness into extraordinary ideas, such as the construction of small boxes with lids containing colorful details from Berlin. The dioramas are made by hand, & all are unique.
