If you ever wanted to be Spider-Man, Argentinian Artist Leandro Erlich will make that dream a reality with his 'Batiment' installation.

Using mirrors to create his optical illusion, Erlich encourages his viewers to scale the building while jumping from window to window -- just as Spider-Man himself would. Don’t worry though, all this is done while on the ground.

If you are itching to make your dreams come true, Erlich’s 'Batiment' installation will be featured until the end of March at Le 104 in Paris as part of their 'Perceptions' Exhibition.

The concept itself is a clever idea, and as you can see from the photos above, viewers seem to have a lot of fun by creating amusing scenarios. Stats for Building Illusion Displays Trending: Older & Warm
