Why is this family jumping off the building or is it an illusion? Photographer Leandro Erlich creates cool illusions.
The Argentine artist is internationally known for his captivating, three-dimensional visual illusions.
This installation specifically was commissioned by the Barbican in Dalston.
A detailed facade of a classic Victorian terraced house lies horizontally on the ground.
Above it, there are mirrors positioned perfectly to reflect the house.
So when visitors are standing on the house displayed on the ground, it appears that they are suspended from or scaling the building vertically (when you look at the mirror).
Even if you know what’s going on here, when you look at the mirror from straight-on you’ll lose yourself to the optical illusion.
Some families get pretty creative with this fun art installation.
Talk about a fun family photo!
