This latest mind-bending shot is called Impact. It took months to create and used over 17 square meters of real mirror. The picture made use of both practical effects and photo-editing in order to produce the twisted effect that you can see in this final warped image merging the real with the surreal.

For this latest project, Erik decided to film a behind-the-scenes video to provide an insight into his artistic experiences. “I thought it could be fun to share the process and to show how much work there is behind creating just one piece,” he says.
