Giant illusion house makes it look like visitors are scaling sheer walls

The Barbican commissioned artist Leandro Erlich to design an illusion that uses a giant, tilted mirror and a building facade that lays flat on the ground to make it look like its participants are defying gravity and scaling walls. The piece is called Dalston House and it's sited on the foundation of a house that was bombed in the Blitz. Erlich will be giving a talk about the piece tomorrow (Thursday) night at the site of the installation: 1-7 Ashwin Street, Dalston, E8 3DL.
