A Rural House Built Entirely From Mirrors in California Desert

Landed at the crossroads where the San Jacinto mountains pierce into the Coachella Valley in California, artist Doug Aitken has built a ranch-style suburban home encased solely in mirrors. Named Mirage, the house appears like an inverted kaleidoscope, displaying everything from the sky above to the nearby mountainous desert, not to mention visitors themselves. The house was created as part of Desert X, an outdoor art exhibit composed of pieces by over 15 artists that continue on view through April 30, 2017. Mirage will stay up a bit longer through October 31 but has somewhat irregular hours so be sure to check the plan before visiting.
