Mirror mirror

It's magical when a piece of art comes alive only with the participation of its audience. Remember the Swimming Pool installation by Leandro Elrich? We shared it on Annalikes a couple of years ago (Refresh your memory here).
Earlier this year, Leandro Elrich was commissioned by the Barbican to create a new installation in Dalston, London. The work resembled a theater set, with a very detailed facade of a Victorian terraced house. The Dalston House, which lies flat on the ground facing a 45 degree-angle mirror overhead, was inviting to anyone walking by. The visitors would position themselves in certain ways  and give the impression that they were suspended on the building.

Elrich created a similar installation called Batiment (building) back in 2004 in France.
