As though straight out of a fairy tale, the art installation titled Restructure by Harumi Yukutake is a home that has been completely covered in mirrors. Beautiful to behold, the reflective surface isn't made out of one big slab of mirror. Instead, it is comprised of countless small circular mirrors, which give the structure a magical, faceted appeal. Even more special is the fact that each mirror was hand cut by the Japanese artist himself. Thus, each circle is as unique as a fingerprint.

Presented during Echigo-Tsumari, Japan's biggest open air art festival, Restructure by Harumi Yukutake invited guests to walk through its interior, which was also covered in mirrors. Reflecting the natural surroundings both inside and out, the installation makes the border between reality and unreality unclear.
