Leandro Erlich – ‘Bâtiment'

Ever wished you could be Spiderman for the day and easily climb the sides of buildings? Leandro Erlich can make your dream come true with his mirrored
installation.

Well you may not actually be climbing up the side of a building but your mind will certainly fool you into thinking you are. This optical illusion consists of a buildings façade being placed on the ground opposite a giant mirror. Although your reflection will show you scaling a building you will actually be crawling along the floor.

‘Bâtiment’ is on display at Le 104 in Paris until March this year as part of their In_Perceptions exhibition.

I love Paris and think this would be such a fun installation to see and take part in but sadly uni, work commitments and a student budget will not allow it!
