Laurence Blackwell-Thale Speculating with Scale

The world of the miniature is a surreal fantasy. A shift in scale from the real to the miniature requires shifting to an alternate understanding of time, strength and physics. A proposal for an extension to Miniatur Wunderland, Hamburg‘s most visited tourist attraction, immerses the visitor in a shifting scale landscape. The extension allows for personal narratives to shift between global time zones at a dream-like speed, as hot climates suddenly fuse with a backdrop of real ice, forming a surreal fantasy experience. The foundation of Wunderland is an endless narrative of fantastical fun, as every visitor overlays their own imagination onto the overwhelming number of 1:87 model interactions.
