Pavement Art

Julian Beever has produced a number of different kinds of pavement art (anamorphic illusions--distorted drawings designed to produce the perception that one is viewing 3 dimensions), including renderings of old masters, advertisements for various companies, etc. This web site will tell you a bit more about his work (and includes the drawings that I sent you earlier this morning): http://users.skynet.be/J.Beever/index.html The links are worth exploring and might give you even more neat ideas for assignments. Be sure to click on the Wall Murals link. (I also thought the collages of Princess Diana made out of photos of her were a neat idea.)
For those of you who are interested in pursuing this a little deeper, pavement art is a form of busking and, in large cities, a busking permit is generally required in order to create pavement art. The Buskers and Busking Resources site might be of interest to students taking drama, vocal music, and instrumental music: http://www.vocalist.org.uk/busking_links.html. Here is another site that might be helpful to that same group: http://www.performers.net/
Some additional resources for those interested in pavement art appear below.
