Want to be like Spiderman? Go to France!
The installation above is by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich. The installation is currently being displayed at Le 104 in Paris as part of their In_Perceptions exhibition. Erlich creates the illusions in the photos above by “recreating an entire building facade on the ground and installing a gigantic mirror tilted 45 degrees”, giving participants the chance to visually experience weightlessness. Erlich is known for installations that defy the basic laws of physics and confuses the audience. In the past, he has done an incredible installation titled ‘Fake Swimming Pool’ (shown above), which was exhibited in the 21st Century Museum of Art at Kanazawa, Japan. The amazing optical illusion of the building facade is on display through March 2012, if you so happen to be in France, be sure to check out this amazing installation.
