3D Crossing

A project by Vegmálun GÍH

3D Street Art as an aid for safety and traffic issues? This is what happened in the small fishing village of Ísafjörður, Iceland, where a 3D pedestrian crossing was painted in an effort to slow traffic on a narrow street. The eye-popping illusion gives the effect of walking on air as pedestrians move from one side of the street to the other.

Environmental commissioner Ralf Trylla came up with the idea after seeing a similar project in New Delhi, India, so he came together with street painting company Vegmálun GÍH to create the effect. They experimented for several weeks before perfecting the technique and painting the crosswalk.
