The Ekkehard Altenburger art piece ‘Mirror House’ combines reflection and the beauty of nature. Altenburger’s large scale floating piece remained temporarily at the Isle of Tyree in Scotland. The installation merged the German sculptor’s passion for architecture and environment. The piece consists of a tiny abode made of metal and steel set against the backdrop of a beautiful body of water with surrounding wilderness.

The house picks up the rocks, water and sky and reflects them back. It blurs the lines between where the structure begins and ends and from different angles projects altering landscapes. The installation was a labor of love and it shows in these magnificent photographs. The Ekkehard Altenburger ‘Mirror House’ is a feat in assembly and exemplifies the artist’s dedication to his craft.
