The centre of the baltic town Zingst is introduced to TAUMASCOPIO an unusual artwork made up entirely of mirrors. it is a space within a space and a way out of reality’s forms and perspectives.
The artwork TAUMASCOPIO of the Italian Architect Mattia Paco Rizzi links the daily life in the street to something from another world.
People enter the artwork and change for a moment their view and knowledge of reality. Like that TAUMASCOPIO does not only offer to be a playful tool for children but takes adults in a space of meditation.
Sometimes the work almost seems to be dropped from outta space while the inside’s aesthetic in its perfection and beauty reminds of the high-quality design only used in boat and airplane construction.
With the two openings to the surrounding world on both ends of the work the people can exchange looks and fragments of themselves.
The work is the perfect room to stop for a moment or take photos to bring home.
TAUMASCOPIO is an artwork in the exhibition Olympus PhotoArtPath 2016 curated by Regina Tetens
