Genre-defying American artist Doug Aitken has taken his renowned mirror installation from the American desert to a bank in Detroit and now, to the snowscape of the Swiss Alps.

‘Mirage Gstaad’ is a fully mirrored installation completed in the style of Californian ranch houses of the ’20s and ’30s. Located in Videmanette, Gstaad in Switzerland, this single storey house relies on natural light and changing weather to illuminate the piece as it both absorbs and reflects the surrounding landscape. The kaleidoscopic experience can be experienced in person until January 2021, or via the live stream here.
