Inception 2005: Berlin


From European Street Painting:


On June 17, 2005 at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, an unexpected illusion appeared.

Pedestrians saw people hanging on the skids of a helicopter in the center of Berlin and new buildings rise out of the ground. 


It took four days to 'build' this virtual city, a huge 3-D painting done with chalk.

With a size of 15 by 25 meters it was a challenge for the four German masters of street painting.


Just one step and you may fall into this fascinating and deceptively real 3-D effect, standing on the 22nd floor with a view of an imaginary urban metropolis.

You feel dizzy, though you are standing with both feet on the ground.
