It’s completely sublime.  

Hyde Park South in Sydney has been transformed into a maze of mirrors this month. The result is surreal and beautiful, provided you don’t run into your own reflection.

The field of 81 mirrored posts -- or 324 reflective surfaces -- was installed by New Zealand creative solutions firm Out of the Dark and is part of the Sydney’s Art & About, a month-long public art festival that kicked off on September 20.

These Instagram snapshots capture how the mirrored field creates constantly changing perspectives of the city, day or night.

In this last image, bicycle art group Cycletron appears to have taken its luminous bike for a spin through the field.
