A Mirror Fence that literally changes with the seasons

This stunning fence looks like a proper picket fence that every respectable American girl dreamed of in the 1950s, except that it’s not: it’s an art installation and unfortunately cannot be purchased at your local hardware store.

Alyson Shotz created her ‘Mirror Fence’ out of a 138 ft x 36 x 4 inches (42.06 m x 91.44 x 10.16 cm) fence made from acrylic, wood, aluminum and ‘hardware’. She covered it with a mirrored finish that makes it look quite surreal, especially when placed in a natural setting.

The fence, which was permanently exhibited at the Storm King Art Center, a sculpture park located in the Lower Hudson Valley in the state of New York, was meant to reflect the surrounding landscape and changes with the seasons.

Alyson has had a very fruitful career and is known for her sculptures made from a range of synthetic materials such as mirror, glass beads, plastic lenses, thread and steel wire, through which she investigates issues of perception and space.
