This incredible sculpture installation was created by artist Phillip K Smith III, in the deserts of Joshua Tree, California. By replacing the old weathered horizontal siding with strips of long reflective mirrors, he transformed the neglected and crumbling structure into a seemingly miraculous optical illusion. The results are simply stunning, and you have to look closely to really notice how special it truly is.
What I love about this optical illusion is that the longer you stare at them, the more you notice. The playful interaction between what is reflected, and what appears to be seen through the cabin makes your brain witch back and forth between what it thinks it sees, and what it’s really seeing. So cool!
