Municipality of Tilburg

City Telescopes

Five telescopes, strategically placed on the main squares of the city, provide insight into local history. The panoramic viewer surfaced in a pool of memories of boring childhood holidays. After insertion of 10 pfenning one could view “das Tal oder die Bergen”. The panoramic viewer was transformed into the city telescope, equipped with a camera that can be held still at about ten points in the immediate vicinity. Subsequently a mini-documentary starts playing with film/photo’s from the past and audio. This way the story of a particular building or district is told in relation to urban development. The telescopes can be rotated in such a way that children have a good view from the step designed for them.
