Daniel Siering and Mario Schuster collaborated on a brilliant piece of street art in a bucolic area of Potsdam, Germany. They wrapped a piece of plastic around a tree and, using the plastic as a canvas, they spray-painted in the strip of landscape behind the tree. This gave the impression that the middle of the tree had been removed and the top half was hovering above its bottom counterpart.
Look at the video footage to see how convincing the art is; even though one knows it’s an illusion, it’s still surprising when runners disappear behind what appears to be open landscape. Siering and Schuster both work for ART-EFX, a program devoted to visual communication, advertising and artistic facade design.
