Alex Chinneck's melting house optical illusion

Okay, I lied. This house is not an illusion - it actually exists.

Artist Alex Chinneck decided to change the facade of an abandoned building in Margate, England into something a little more memorable. He said that many people are intimidated by art galleries, so he wanted to create a public artwork that was a humorous illusion that was accessible to anyone.

Spectators seem to like it.
I wonder what the neighbors think.

The best part is that the house is constructed out of 
actual building materials, curved to make them melt.
I especially like the satellite dish - because even 
people in sliding houses need their telly.

Artist makes house slide into the street - but it's all just an optical illusion, Mirror>>
