This work of Scottish artist Rob Mulholland is incredible.

Human sculptures in acrylic glass that are perfectly camouflaged in the environment. His installation, Vestige, comprises 6 sculptures of men and women and is, for the author, a reflection of the relationship between human beings and the environment. What Rob wants with his creation is to recreate a community within the protective elements of the woods, reflecting the past inhabitants of the space. With that, every sculpture reflects the day-to-day change of the forest. (Source)




In the summer of 2011 Joakim Kaminsky and Maria Poll went into the deep forests of Medelpad in northern Sweden. With them they brought 15 meters of mirror-coated fabric aiming to create an installation that would interpret the life cycle of this pine forest. (Source)


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 handcut 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, this presentation 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. (Source)


Located in the grounds of Royal Fort House at the University of Bristol, UK, this mesmerising public art installation by Danish artist Jeppe Hein comprises a square labyrinth of 76 vertical polished steel plates. Hein's inspiration for the sculpture, known as “Follow Me”, was drawn from the historic gardens designed by Sir Humphry Repton, and the university's role as a place of self discovery. (Source)


When we first saw these images of "mirror man", we thought this to be a sculpture. But later we realized that this wasn't just another sculpture but a street performer who creates amazing living art in Los Angeles. Flickr user SiLver sKY spotted him near Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

He was wearing a suit made of mirrors -- from head to toe. (Source | Photo)


This amazing Art Bus covered in broken mirrors was photographed at the American Visionary Art Museum at 2008's "Artscape" in Baltimore, Maryland. It's a magical Noah's Ark with mosaic animals hanging from the windows. (Source)


Mirrors are typically considered an erotic addition to a hotel room but this example at the Propeller Island Hotel carries the principle to the extreme with wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling mirrors spanning the diamond-shaped space. (Source | Via)


In this piece, the mirrors enhance the sharp edges of ice.
