Blending the digital world with the analog.

A cool new art project called "Street Eraser" reveals what it might look like if our urban surroundings could disappear, just like an image in Photoshop.

London advertising professionals Guus Ter Beek and Tayfun Sarier have been plastering the city with giant stickers that reference Photoshop's eraser tool, which expose a grey and white checkerboard pattern when an area has been erased.

The team told Designboom that they like the idea that there could be something hiding under the surface of everything around us.
