15 Mirrored Outdoor Artworks
Here are 15 outstanding examples of artists using the mirror in sculpture. Perhaps the most famous is Jeff Koons “Rabbit” which created quite a stir when first exhibited in the Whitney Biennial. He took a mundane and inexpensive blow up Easter rabbit and transformed it into something dazzling and provocative. Stainless steel is notoriously difficult to cast and given a mirrored surface. It was reported that Koons spent over a hundred thousand dollars in production costs alone. Like all the rest of these sculptures they all have one thing in common. Rather than being a mere object to look at and contemplate, these sculptures reflect back the world around them. It’s where the viewer inadvertently becomes the subject, interacting with it on a deeper, more personal level.
