‘The Phoenix Is Closer Than It Appears’ is a mind-boggling art installation that revolves around the use of mirrors. A small hundred-square-foot room placed in a bare room of the KUNSTEN, Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark, the exterior is covered in mirrors that help it to blend into its bland surroundings. The inside, however, is a different story all together. As soon as people step in the tiny room, they are bombarded with infinite reflections of themselves.

Like a giant mirrored matrix, ‘The Phoenix Is Closer Than It Appears’ installation is captivating. Created by Berlin-based artist Thilo Frank, the walls, floor and ceiling feature dizzying replicas of the inhabitant. The experience is only heightened by the swing they are invited to sit on.
