Der grosse Gottlieb

DerGrosseGottlieb_Promo_S_GERMAN (Andere)

Daniel Ernst, Netherlands (2014)

Der grosse Gottlieb is the second in a sequence of diorama’s: This one places the visitor on the tower of chairs of the greatest acrobat that ever lived: Der Grosse Gottlieb. Gottlieb built his tower of chairs to reach the stars and try to leave his his aching heart behind.

Here, being in a virtual space is a full experience in itself – Interactivity is used to enhance the sense of presence, not solve a puzzle or reach the end of a level.

Daniel researched the possibilities of narrative through illusions in his graduation and worked on the Overlord games and Cargo Commander. In addition, he taught art and design at the University of the Arts (HKU) and founded The Shoebox Diorama in 2013.
