Hovering tree

Art that floats the idea of magic.

Now you see me, now you don’t. This magic trick of sorts is actually an illusion painting by┬áDaniel Siering and Mario Shu in Potsdam, Germany. The artists covered a tree with a plastic band, spray painted grass, road and sky to match its surroundings, and voila, the first floating tree. Luckily this appears to be a rural area where there are probably few pedestrians who’ve had a little too much to drink and may be tempted to try jumping through the gaping hole. On second thought, that would actually make for a pretty entertaining (anti-drinking) video.
