I like the guy who simply writes enigmatic phrases in crayon all over SF. They encompass some weird type of conspiracy involving John Lennon, Natalie Wood and bad 80s Tv dramas, and are totally fascinating. I may be the only one who notices them, though.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum

just recently found this in the web and i thought its some awesome artwork not only taken to the streets, also asking for illusions and interactions with the viewer/ pedestrian.

Use your eyes

Residential buildings and a couple of business are strung together. The look falls to an apparently quite normal street of a German, medium-sized town. But an apocalyptic scene offers itself to the observer.

The floor has burst and lava flow into a raging sea there where cars ran once and the people followed their weekday. Nothing is like it once was. The superior elemental force forces its way. Appearances are deceptive.

Edgar Mueller uses the street as a canvas. If one looks of the right point of view, its three-dimensional painting becomes the perfect illusion.
"It gets thrilling when the observer runs in the picture." Edgar about the real intention of his work.

He offers his audience a scenery, which challenges to proceed. The spectator turns into the protagonist and creative element of the scene offered him. Mueller wants to collect those infinitely many versions of this scene. He would like to collect photo sequences, which deceive the human eye, confuse it, challenge the intellect.

"Only on the photos the illusion will seem perfect because it isn't in the context of the process of painting any more. There also will be snapshots where the illusion becomes an irritation - the scene exposed as scenery if the protagonist being at the 'wrong place'."



For five days Edgar painted to create this illusion you see above. Up to four helpers suited him aside to cope with the 8 x 50 meters big area. With about 400 m ˛ this 3D picture is even more tremendous than the first of this series of large sized pictures - the waterfall.

But Edgar Mueller doesn't play only with big areas and elemental forces - he asks his audience to enter the scenery created by him and to go in interaction with the picture.

"A camera at the right viewing point takes a picture every 5 second. I'm fascinated by the snapshots. Each picture is different. I wonder what the people will do with the scenery ", Edgar Mueller says.

theres more fom him like:

Giant 3D Painting

The first of this planned series of the large-sized street paintings was created in Moose Jaw (Canada-Saskatchewan) on the occasion of the Prairie Arts festival in summer 2007. "Turning Riverstreet into a River" is the biggest three-dimensional street painting ever done. 280 m˛ are covered with paint. With the help of local artists Edgar turned the street into a river which ended in an enormous waterfall.

and:

Crevasse in Dun Laoghaire

In Dun Laoghaire the "Festival of World Culture" takes place from 21. to 24. of August. Edgar Müller has followed the invitation and would like to continue his series of large-sized 3D Pavement Art there. He puts a part of the eastern Pier into the ice age. This project is supported by the Goethe Institution Germany.

Wow, I love stuff like that. Brilliant! Wish I could see it from another angle, but I guess that'd break the illusion.

BTW, the crevasse pic you posted is just a draft.
