Cityscope – An Urban Kaleidoscope: Cologne, Germany (8 photos)

It's always great to see people coming up with new and creative installations of urban street art. German designer Marco Hemmerling has created a multi-faceted installation in Cologne, Germany called Cityscope which reflects fragments of surrounding buildings. While moving around the sculpture, the reflections on the glass continuously change. In this way, the viewer becomes an integral part of the installation and its complex reflections. As day becomes night, the installation takes on a whole new life. The structure is lit from within and the reflective, color-distorting film on its surface becomes transparent adding to its fragmented perception theme. Love the versatility and beauty of this piece!
