Mirrors on Easels Create the Illusion of Landscape Paintings

While working as the artist in residence at the Joshua Tree National Park in California, Daniel Kukla placed mirrors on easels to showcase nature's own magnificence. He explains:

While hiking and driving, I caught glimpses of the border space created by the meeting of distinct ecosystems in juxtaposition, referred to as the Edge Effect in the ecological sciences. To document this unique confluence of terrains, I hiked out a large mirror and painter’s easel into the wilderness and captured opposing elements within the environment. Using a single visual plane, this series of images unifies the play of temporal phenomena, contrasts of color and texture, and natural interactions of the environment itself.
