Production of the "world's largest plasma globe" for the Technorama Museum in Winterthur / Switzerland, which will be presented to the public from autumn 2018. The globe has an outside diameter of 105cm and has a pure glass weight of 95kg.

With the life-size circulatory sculpture "Inside", Bernd Weinmayer was part of a installation by the French artist Daniel Firman, which was presented at the "Le Voyage a Nantes" art weeks from July to August 2018 at the Nantes Opera House. The sculpture was suspended 5 meters above the auditorium and was supported by a video music composition. With a working time of almost 3 months, the “Inside” project is one of the most time-intensive creative works of Bernd Weinmayer.
