This Tree In Germany Is Getting A Lot Of Attention.. And No, The Image Is Not Photoshopped

January 5, 2014

Graphic designer Daniel Siering and art director Mario Schuster have taken a solitary tree in Potsdam, Germany and transformed it into a split, hovering trunk... WITHOUT image editing software!

To create the illusion, Siering and Shu wrapped a section of the tree in foil and proceeded to spray paint it in the likeness of the surrounding environment. From the precise angle, the tree looks as though it is floating in mid-air.

The artistic duo, who happen to be co-workers at ART-EFX (a company focused on creating innovative commercial art and classical landscapes), have teamed up on this fun, personal project and gained a great deal of attention from it already. Though there's little information beyond their names, the city the tree is located in, and the minimal materials used, there's also not much that needs to be said about the mind-boggling optical illusion.
