We are the universe
Location: Berlin (Charité Mitte)
(1:50-scale model of a garden installation at the Campus Charité Mitte)
To emphasise the importance of fresh air and nature not only for visitors but also especially for patients of The Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, I decided to make an installation in the two gardens at the Campus Charité Mitte. However, the idea behind my installation was not only to make the place more beautiful, but also to allow the people using the garden to engage with their environment and thus actively participate in creating a dynamic landscape. To attract the attention to the gardens from within the clinic, the windows should be covered with an iris film.
This iridescent material shimmers in different colours depending on the light and the perspective of the spectator, thus allowing the patients to experience the garden in novel ways.
