I don’t see anything. Do you see anything?

In response to our River Street Arts Festival post, Nippertown regular AndyG commented about Julian Beaver’s famous 3D anomorphic pavement works, specially distorted drawings that create an impression of 3 dimensions when seen from one particular viewpoint.

This photograph of urban camouflage works in reverse – seen from the right viewpoint, the object tends to disappear.


I was going to do an urban camouflage link roundup, but Web Urbanist has already beaten me to it, and I don’t think I could top their amazing collection. Have a look: Web Urbanist: The Uninvisible Art of Amazing Urban Camouflage

    Now if only I had an expensive car…
