A Brilliant Piece Of Street Art That Only Makes Sense At Night
By Dorothy Tan, 07 Aug 2013
Street artist ABOVE has created an ingenious stencil piece that will only make sense to the viewer at night.
It took nearly seven months for the artist to find the perfect spot on which to place his stencil of a breakdancer balancing on one hand—in the day, it looks like he is suspended in mid-air.
At night, however, a street lamp would shine down on a nearby street sign that then casts a shadow on the wall—when that happens, the breakdancer stencil is perfectly poised on the shadow, creating a brilliant illusion.
See how this site-specific and time-sensitive artwork is meant to be viewed below.
