Artist Ekkehard Alteburger produced ‘Mirror House’ in 1996 during his student days at Edinburgh College of Art. At the time, he was studying sculpture and he was invited to take part in an exhibition on the Isle of Tyree, which is a flat, wind swept island on the southern Hebrides, Scotland. What looks more like a Photoshop exercise is actually a construction of large mirror sheets on a steel frame. The work sits in a shallow lake, and the house is reflecting the Atlantic Ocean. The project influenced and guided Altenburgers artistic career ever since. He is currently living and working in London.
