Fireflies on the Water (2002), by Yayoi Kusama.
Fireflies on the Water isan installation made of 150 lights, mirrors and water.
It offers an out-of-this-world experience from the confines of a modest room paneled with mirrors and adorned with 150 tiny beads of light deliberately suspended throughout the compact space. Upon entering the room, there’s an illusionary effect that gives the impression of infinite space reflected on all sides and in the two inches of water that flows below.
July 12 - September 30, Whitney Museum.

Magical House Covered in Thousands of Mirrors
Back in 2009, during Japan’s biggest open-air art festival, called Echigo-Tsumari, artist Harumi Yukutake constructed a magical-looking house covered with thousands of round mirrors. After walking along a narrow path surrounded by grass on both sides, visitors would come upon this house that seemed to merge with its surroundings, making the border between reality and unreality unclear.
Each mirror was unique because it was hand cut by the artist. According to Guardian, the house, called Restructure, “had no back wall, just a space opening onto a view of the fields, reflected endlessly in the thousands of mirrors that lined the inside walls.”
DIY Statement Mirror Using a Stencil. “WARNING: Reflections in this mirror may be distorted by socially constructed ideas of ‘beauty’ “. She bought her stencil, but you could make one. Really easy tutorial (no etching glass unless you want to) from Dans Le Townhouse here.
Another cool optical illusion installation by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich. This one called “In Perceptions” consisting of a giant mirror that reflects the audience lying on a constructed building facade. More of Leandro work HERE
Art is just amazing.
