OK, here’s something that I believe should get you folks really curious: you all know about M. C. Escher, so I needn’t say more. Folks like me, we simply read books on Escher to pontificate on the myriad artistic and philosophical implications of the drawings.
When Krish Ashok gets into his inimitable style of recursive loops (see one of his comments, for example), folks like me simply reminisce about Escher’s Drawing Hands.
But how does one transform Escher’s imaginative-and-impossible drawings into 3D reality?
Andrew Lipson has used Lego in exactly such a creative fashion to make 3D models of Escher’s works, including ‘Balcony’, ‘Ascending and Descending’, and ‘Waterfall’.
There’s of course a gimmick involved, but its worth a study. Though his work has been Digged, Boinged, etc., there were URL changes and so on, so here’s another fresh look for us newbies.
