3D street artist Leon Keer with one of his creations.
That's the challenge confronting Dutch illusionist Leon Keer, and he's meeting it by exploring a new dimension: motion. It's all well and good to create a life-size Pac-Man maze on the pavement, but what if you could see creatures moving in that maze?

You can see more of Keer's paintings and videos at his website, Streetpainting 3D.
