Mirror house (1996)
The work «Mirror house» was exhibited in 1996 on the Scottish island of Tyree. The construction of steel and mirrors captures the breathtaking landscape of the island. Upon close study of this work, the boundary between the environment and the architectural sculpture becomes blurred. Altenburger's intrusion in the wild and untamed nature, reveals the actual contrast between this and the surrounding environment. In his work, a balance between these two poles emerges.
