Veronica's World is a permanent kinetic sculpture at the Grundschule am Ilse-von-Twardowski-Platz, Munich, Germany.
The site-specific sculpture is based on the concept of an 'orrery', a mechanical model of the solar system. In Veronica's World there is no sun at the centre. Planets and moons are replaced by toys and objects, which were chosen by a primary school girl. Like in a solar system the objects rotate barely noticeable around the centre constantly changing distances and relationships to each other. Integrated in the sculpture is also an 'astronomical clock' with names of her friends and relatives.
