Hear ye hear ye. The fabled Der Grosse Gottlieb, the greatest acrobat of his generation, will perform his final amazing trick. After building a tower of chairs twice the size of the Eiffeltower, he will now built a tower of mythical proportions, high enough to knock on heaven's door to visit the stars!

Der Grosse gottlieb is the second addition in a series of fantastical dioramas for the Oculus Rift by interactive illustrator Daniel Ernst called The Shoebox Diorama.


Der Grosse Gottlieb can be enjoyed with or without a physical installation. The installation premièred at Amaze festival and was built @ w00t festival in Copenhagen. The installation was built in cooperation with Dutch sculptress Catinka Kersten who was recently added to the collection of two museum collections, one of which is Beelden aan Zee. A virtual tour of the installation is added to the zip of the diorama which can be downloaded from the top right download section.
