May 2007 | Travels Through Paradise
Megla participated in Travels Through Paradise, miniature landscape exhibition, curated by Cynthia Hathaway at Platform 21 in Amsterdam.
21 April - 27 May 2007
“What does paradise look like? In your own miniature world, it’s up to you. Platform 21 asked train hobbyists, designers, artists, architects and students to build a fantasy miniature landscape in our round upperfloor space. Each one has one metre to make fantasy reality.
Model-building is a creative, imaginative process, but one whose popularity issteadily losing ground to the digital world, gaming, and prefab building products. Therefore Cynthia Hathaway, guest curator at Platform 21, wanted to shine a spotlight on this medium, which is important to hobbyists as well as professionals.
Visitors can make a cinematic trip through the 55-metre fantasy landscape. The train carries a camera which films the scenery rolling by out the window. Taking you on a life-size ride through paradise…”
