Project Description:
Erlich's work is a visual illusion so people can feel like they're on the side of a 19th century Victorian terrace home. It exists on a lot that was bombed in WWII and lay empty. There is a mirror suspended at 45 degrees above the house, which looks like many of the houses that were destroyed by fighter planes in the war, allowing for the illusion to take place.

Building Address:
1-7 Ashwin Street, London, E8 3DL
