constructing paradise provides the user with seven paradise concepts. They are outlined in a manual which includes many hints and useful advises for setting up an individual paradisiacal place at ones home. While following the suggested place concepts, the user can get started with the eden paradise, which stands for the most natural and original of all ideas of paradise. The purgatory paradise represents a counter concept to the idyllic and depicts places of pain and amazement. The baroque paradise visualises disciplined nature, while the moon paradise creates a utopian place and shows the plurality of worlds. The hawaii concept contains images and souvenirs of an actual realised paradise. The shipping paradise, however, stands for the search for adventure and the extraordinary. Finally, the seventh paradise shows the drugstore, which is the place of speed and stimulation.
All constructing paradise data are stored on a CD and available via  >> edition sutstein
