This Optical Illusion Tree Is About To Blow Your Mind

Posted: Updated:

Somewhere in Potsdam, Germany, a single, painted tree is blowing minds of passersby (and YouTube viewers) en masse.

Graphic designer Daniel Siering and art director Mario Schuster teamed up to transform a natural form into a mind-bending illusion. With the help of some tin foil and paint, the creative duo camouflaged an unassuming tree trunk to fit the natural landscape that surrounded it.

In the video above, we can barely separate the painted trunk from the horizon, giving the unwieldy foliage the illusion of floating in mid air. In a sea of somewhat tacky optical illusions, this understated visual ploy is just the right amount op and art.
