A new book from a selection of street-dimensional illusions Kurt Wenner, a former employee of NASA, who uses mathematical skills to create three-dimensional illusions on sidewalks all over the world. When looking at the correct angle it seems that there are people standing on them, fly through the air, and in situ concrete may seem like a bottomless pit. Kurt perfected his technique in 1982.
Teper, using the skills he perfected over 30 years, he is able to create stereoscopic images such as in the photo above, so that people could walk on the unreal Wide Web, released Spider-Man.
For 25 years, the artist uses complex calculations from his previous work – the creation of conceptual images of extraterrestrial landscapes in NASA – to liven up the floor and walls. Due to the emergence of computer-generated images, he was one of the last artists who studied mechanical expect the prospect of using a pencil, paper and complicated equations. But in 1982 he stopped playing and space projects, once sold all their belongings and moved from the U.S. to Italy, where he now applies his knowledge in the art.
He says: “The drawings look real because they are calculated completely, and mathematically accurate. They would have looked that way, if the objects in my paintings were actually real. I use the rope to limit the distance from the point of view to my drawings. This allows me to calculate exactly what needs to be perspective. The figure midsize takes me five to seven days. ”
It was the first interactive three-dimensional street painting, which combines real people, with their painted reflections. It was created during the street festival of paintings for the Swiss-German documentary film in 1987 in the Grazie Di Curtatone, Italy.
