Mirror House on Scottish seashore

I am ashamed to say I have never heard of German artist Ekkehard Altenburger--the sculptor has been producing work since the mid-1990s. His site-specific, public installations are truly beautiful, particularly Mirror House (pictured above). Installed in 1996 on the Isle of Tyree, Scotland, the home served as a temporary waterside installation. Though the structure no longer stands, Altenburger sells prints of his beautiful sculpture online. He is truly an artist to keep an eye on the coming years.

  1. I wonder how remote a location this is. I could imagine the artist made this purely to vex a passer by and add an element of magic to a world that's been all but untouched. Cool!
