Well let’s tell you what it was:
My blogging friend RoSy from the USA saw this and asked if it was near were I live and yes it was…
Leandro Erlich: Dalston House
Internationally known for captivating, three-dimensional visual illusions, Argentine artist Leandro Erlich has been commissioned by the Barbican to create Dalston House, an installation in Hackney.
Located in Hackney, Dalston House is a temporary installation comprising a reconstructed house facade lying face-up and a mirror positioned over it at a 45-degree angle.
As a person walks over the surface of the house, the mirror reflects their image and creates the illusion that they are walking up the walls. Similarly, visitors can make it look like they are balancing over the cornices or dangling from the windows.
The brick walls and decorative window mouldings of the three-storey facade are designed to mimic the nineteenth-century Victorian terraces that line many of London’s streets, particularly a row of houses that once occupied this site on Ashwin Street.
It is an amazing piece of art and we had a great time and fun together!
