Do you want to climb up walls like Spiderman? How does he do it?

 

 

 

 

Argentinean artist Leandro Erlich reveals all with his latest temporary installation called Dalston House in Hackney, London. Commissioned by the Barbican Gallery as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2013,   the artist created a flat Victorian house facade on the ground with a 45-degree angle mirror hanging over it to create the optical illusion of a real brick house.

 

 

 

 

The public is invited to interact with the project by sitting or walking on the installation to create the illusion of climbing on walls or hanging from cornices and windows.
