We have seen some amazing public art projects unfold in 2013 like Italian Artist Mimmo Rubino’s colourful amphitheatre and The Wrap Project in Vancouver . Two colleagues at ART-EFX, Graphic designer Daniel Siering and art director Mario Schuster finished the year with one of their very creative site-specific project in Potsdam, Germany.
The duo created an illusion of a tree cut from the bottom, yet the upper part of the bark holding the branches is still standing upright or floating in the air. The effect was created by wrapping a part of a trunk with foil and later colouring it with spray paint, masterfully mimicking the surrounding behind the tree. The illusion of a hovering tree, spilt in half, works perfectly in one particular angle. Check out the video and images below to catch the action.
