Carola’s Garden at the Panometer in Leipzig

Carola's Garden, Panometer Leipzig, Germany“Carola’s Garden: A Paradise on Earth” is a new exhibition at the Panometer Leipzig, 114 Richard-Lehmann-Strasse, Leipzing, Germany.

Road Trips Gardeners will be able to see the largely hidden world of the very smallest organisms. The new circular picture is the first microcosm panorama made by Yadegar Asisi and looks out on a Leipzig garden, enlarged like never before, from the perspective of a grain of pollen.

Visitors can, for example, observe a bee 20 meters (more than 65 feet) in size as it pollinates the blossom, and get to know the diversity of the region’s fauna and flora anew. As with the previous panoramas, “Carola’s Garden” also features matching background noises, and Asisi’s characteristic day and night light simulation to create a realistic atmosphere in the panorama image.

A familiar world will unfold before your eyes in a completely new way, as if under a gigantic microscope. But unlike in a laboratory, it is the world around you that is depicted to be one hundred times its real size. The panorama will put its guests’ view of the world into perspective and open their eyes to the small beauties of life.
