Walking on Air

Trompe L'oeil 9 November 2017 2 Comments

In an effort to get drivers to slow down at an intersection, the city of Ísafjörður, Iceland, decided to use a trompe l’oeil painting to potentially fool drivers behind the wheel.  The painting of a pedestrian crossing area was designed so that it appears to be floating a few inches over the pavement.  The “trick” only works when viewed from this angle, but I wonder how many drivers have pumped their brakes as they approach this unique intersection?

    Thanks Brad, I’d been searching for a decent image of this crossing illusion for some time now. This one is superb!
