THE ROOM OF SUBLIME WALLPAPER (I), 2008

Looking in, the viewer sees a room, wallpapered with newspaper, containing a salon-style hanging of landscape paintings.  Upon entering the room the illusion is shattered as it becomes apparent that the "paintings" are actually mirrors reflecting the landscapes painted on the wooden panels that make up the walls of the room that are not visible from the outside.  Another room in the Museum of Failure.
