Kaleidoscope (Prototype)

Littmann Kulturprojekte GmbH, Basel, Switzerland


Basel, Switzerland




  • Klaus Littmann comes to my studio one day with a small toy kaleidoscope that he discovered in an airport shop, and asks if I can build him a much larger one: ‘Maybe about two meters long …?’

My Solutions

  • I disassemble the little kaleidescope into all its individual parts, study the simple mechanisms and from that point begin the construction design.
  • With continuous adaptations and refinements I manage to produce a functioning kaleidoscope in the desired size.
