Artists do an important job in opening the eyes and minds of all that are willing to embark on a visual experience. But, some artists take it a step further and involve their viewers into their work.
Leandra Erlich is a known optical illusionist who was commissioned by the Barbican in London to provide an installation of one of his popular art pieces. The piece chosen is a Victorian home with protruding ledges at the windows for everyone of all ages to live out their Spiderman experience. The photos taken at the location after Erlich’s completed the installation that opened in East London Wednesday, show families scaling the house…with the help of a ginormous mirror, according to ThisisCollossal.com
The piece titled Dalston House was placed in Hackney on a lot that has been vacant since a bombing in that location in World War II. The art piece gives the illusion of weightlessness as they appear to effortlessly climb the building and, even one child in a Spidey suit rescues his mom while barely holding on to the window ledge.
Check it out! Erlich’s piece is a fun piece of art that could give children a real appreciation for his work.
