Autumn de Wilde’s Kaleidoscope Houses
Architecture & Interiors
Photographer and artist Autumn de Wilde created this ethereal installation, named Lighting, Layers and Reflections, as a backdrop for—of all things—a Cadillac ad campaign. De Wilde says that a car, the Escalade 2015, did indeed serve as inspiration for the two jewel-like 7 x 12 foot houses, constructed in the California mountains with plexiglass and mirrored surfaces. We’ll admit to finding the connection between a showy, luxury car and these airy, kaleidoscope-like structures remote, at best; but their magical beauty, set amidst the desolate western landscape—their lighting, layers and reflections—has us duly entranced.
