A dramatic art installation in Adelaide, Australia. 

Since the beginning of March, an all-black house has been jutting out of the ground in front of the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide.

While it appears to have crash-landed on Earth, the house — representative of the typical 1920s-era suburban Australian home — is actually an installation by artist Ian Strange. Previously, Strange turned a series of American suburban homes into works of art. 

Aptly titled "Landed," the sculptural work was commissioned for the 2014 Biennial of Australian art and will be on view through May.
