3D Escher


Have you ever heard of the Dutch artist M.C. Escher?  His famous works depicted impossible realities, often based upon mathematical and spatial challenges.  Case in point, one of Escher’s most famous works, titled Relativity:

Let me guess, even if you’ve never heard of M.C. Escher, you’ve seen the above  picture, right?  But have you ever seen it in 3D?  Seems people have been recreating Escher’s art in Lego form, which I think is pretty cool!

How about more of Escher’s most famous works, done in 3D Lego style?

  1. Neat that someone would try, but I am skeptical that when seeing these in 3D, as opposed to the 2D representation of them (photos), they will really appear as Escher’s illusions. The whole point of the illusions is they are impossible in 3D. (Yeah, spoilsport- I know… 😀 )

  2. Ok, I see your point. I guess I titled it wrong. I didn’t mention that the photos of the Lego creations were altered in various ways to achieve the same illusions as the original prints on a 2D photograph 🙂

  3. Ah, but the first picture is one that can be modeled in 3-d. You just can’t walk on all the walls.

    I’ve always liked Escher’s work.
