Wonders of Nature Exhibition at Gasometer Oberhausen

The Gasometer Oberhausen is a very unique exhibition space, extremely well suited for the current Wonders of Nature exhibition which features beautiful photographs of animals, plants and landscapes. It’s main attraction though, is a 20 meter sphere onto which images of Earth are projected from all sides.

It makes a lasting impression whether you see it suspended in the air or when you view it from the observation deck some 100m above it.

But aside from the exhibits, the exhibition space is in itself noteworthy. Its simultaneously massive and intricate black steel structure is extremely fascinating. But it doesn’t get in the way of the artwork. It fades into the background letting the photographs shine instead.

Still, I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of the space, trying to capture it’s feel.
