In a very unusu­al and inter­est­ing series of por­traits, the Berlin artist Men­no Aden depict­ed the inte­ri­or of the room in a rather uncon­ven­tion­al way. The view of the inte­ri­or space was con­veyed, as if from a bird’s eye view. This per­spec­tive is often used in car­tog­ra­phy, as well as projects and build­ing plans. Aden, on the oth­er hand, offers us a look at the dif­fer­ent types of rooms from above.
