The Reflective BuildingJuxtapoz // Monday, 11 Jul 2011
Swedish artist Mikael Pauli created this building that is unlike any we have ever seen; polished and coated in a weather-resistant paint called Pärlemur, the building can ask a reflective surface. The building, the Hufenomen, can be seen at the permanent site at Galleri Örsta in Kumla, Sweden
As Gessato notes, "Headlights of parked cars shine onto this structure and produce a reflective light onto this framework. 'From one angle the surface appears red, and from the other it’s blue,' Pauli explains. 'As the spectator moves positions, the reflection colours change.'"
Another interesting characteristic of the building is that from other angles the building reflects the shadows of forest imagery.
