"Invisible" mirror fence
Mirror fence - conceptual designAmerican designer Alison Schotz (Alyson Shotz) from Brooklyn, New York. A fence with a mirror surface creates the appearance of an infinite landscape and at the same time is practically invisible, merging with the surrounding space. Therefore, such a fence is a rather dangerous decor of the site for animals, birds, children and inattentive adults. If you do not know that a solid surface is in front of you, you can hit hard and get injured. Probably, that's why the concept remains a concept, not widely spread among private owners of houses and territories. But the idea is very interesting! The mirror fence was installed in New York asArt installation within the framework of the exhibition Storm King Art Center in 2010-2012. Despite the appearance and the obvious name, the fence is made entirely from the mirror. The main material is wood and acrylic, and the reflective surface is made of sheets of polished aluminum. From a distance to understand that this is a fence - almost impossible. From any angle, the surface reflects the surrounding landscape - grass, trees, the sky ... It seems that this futuristic force field, guarding the territory, invisible, but effective. Theoretically, to establish at the cottage such an art fencequite possible. An ordinary wooden or metal fence must be covered with mirror aluminum. To do this, it will be necessary to cut the overlay on the fence strips from the sheet of the special metal saw. I think that such a task can be handled by firms specializing in the production of metal fences and other types of fences, as here - http://www.zabor2000.ru/. But is it advisable to install a mirror fence in a private house? Alas, in free access there is no statistics from New York on the number of affected animals and people. If at all someone was keeping such records.
