Creative Spotlight: Leandro Erlich’s Reflective Optical Illusion House

Looking at a normal object in a different way helps creatives bring a fresh perspective to everyday items. The Argentinian artist Leandro Elrich did just that in his piece titled “Dalston House,” turning a house on its side.

The piece uses a wall of giant mirrors, which reflects against a huge horizontal print of a Victorian terraced house. Visitors are then free to climb and jump around on the print of the house, which is reflected in the mirror above. Visitors hang from windows, skateboard along ledges, and crawl along walls in this optical illusion.
