i don't tink escher could not fil the empty place he wanted it to be there. in my oppinion you dit not make this picture complete you have just rowend it. my grandmother new escher himself end he said so to her himself. so stop with nowing it better en let art be art.

Thanks for a few delightful hours of neck-twisting fun! I particularly enjoyed that you added in an Escher drawing in the spot where information was missing! so clever =). I will definitely be sharing this with my students (and many others). cheers, UCLA ph.d. student

I really love this art!

H.J. van Elburg2005-02-26 06:28:21
Wonderful to see how a rather simple procedure like a conformal mapping truly adds something to the picture in a sense that I think would have pleased Escher himself.

hi I like Escher but we need some facts because we have a project due next week on him!!!!!!!!!! P.S. Escher is super kool!!!!!!!

i really enjoyed this site

Escher was one cool dude. His imagination was abosolutely amazing. I wish I could have met him before he need to put in here his reasons for making his works though. that is a question on my geometry project, and I fail to find an answer.

Juanita Zeinstra2005-02-24 19:43:54
Absolutely fascinating. I have long been a fan of the Escher art. I did not realized this about the incredible "hole". How interesting.

Sara Lyerly2005-02-24 14:42:09
I love the work!!!

thomas from 2 spaces down2005-02-24 03:45:41
do you have a screen saver option or somthing? no? you should make one so i can marval at it all day long! _

thomas2005-02-24 03:41:08
what is the blury spot? i would like to know! have you figured it out? i hope you have, i hope i dont sond demanding 'cause i don't mean to. thomas

RES2005-02-21 17:26:54
so, even though the method is cool and suspected to be known, what's the point? Is this simply an artistic rendering of light's convective properties or a lesson on infinity or some such thing? Or, is there another meaning here? I appreciate the artist's graphic representation of logarithmic values, etc. but perhaps the hole in the middle of the drawing represents something else. Maybe the hole in the artist's life, a hole which is ever expansive and eternally deep, filled with meaning, ... read more

haai, wij doen ons profielwerkstuk over MC Escher, echt zown leuwk onderwerp :D.. deze site is echt fett.. vooral da je zover in kunt zoemen in zijn schilderijen, echt een aanrader om eens un museum van Escher te bezoeken!! groetjes loesje

G.2005-02-12 02:29:48
Wow, both you and Escher are geniuses in my mind. To take apart Escher's pictures is simply amazing and yet your explanationis amazingly simple. Wow, this definately calls for some Escher paraphernalia! Ditto about the screen saver; that would be awesome!

I just went to a lecture that discussed this! I am impressed and inspired! Way to go!

Were you a math genius

Julie Ann Droste2005-02-08 15:42:44
Very interesting work.

andy2005-02-07 15:44:56
best wel een leerrijke onderwerp. Een combinatie om er even stil bij te staan.

uwai2005-02-06 12:34:03
Excellent! This is what I was looking for. BTW, how about my poor trials?

John Kostoulas2005-02-04 21:31:27
I just visited the M.C. Escher gallery in Athens and I was amazed by your animation. How possibly is it to be able to download and save the entire animation in my hard drive. Do you have a screen saver version of your work? Thanks, JK

Een waarlijk perpitum mobile maar dan in perspectief.

klok2005-01-31 03:14:19
holy cow! im almost having a fit in amazement at how cool that is. there are also sound artists who have created circular ascending tones etc. ill find out their names and post them up later. if u are interested in illusion/anamorphic/movement art check out japanese artist Shigeo Fukuda. well done lads at unravelling an awesome work of art!

cristina alvarado2005-01-30 00:06:19
Escher has such an amazing mind that visually (in a 2d format) represents motion. MOTION: anatomical motion, spatial motion, evolutionary motion, circulatory motion and subconscious motion. He plays with one's psyche and sight creating a link or dimension in which both realms meet!! Truly fascinating work!!

I´m mathematician from Săo Paulo, Brazil. I´m very happy about your talent and job to showing people terrific concepts throuhg Mr.Escher's Arts. Congratulation

Koos Smit2005-01-23 11:19:52
Great site. This proves that math can be fun too.

Phyllis Hambleton2005-01-20 23:44:34
This website is genius. Escher is absolutely "The" example of a truly educated and talented artistic genius.The site itself is also wonderfully executed and the information is exciting and great to find. Thank you for such a great contribution to the public domain.

Indigo2005-01-18 17:54:20
Well, I had been searching for pictures of Escher because of a school project. I didn´t expect to find something like this. It´s simply amazing. I haven´t thought about this particular image that much but now I´m brooding. Anyway, I am thankful for putting this in the net. P.S.:Those animationes gave me a real headach.

Onbegrijpelijk mooi.

Ik ben een vette alpha en logaritmen zijn n iet aan mij besteed, maar de lezing van afgelopen zondag in Paradiso was geweldig swingend!

IJsbrand Steentjes2005-01-16 17:35:06
Voor wiskunde moet ik in 1 VWO een aantal opdrachten doen over Escher. Heeft u uw verhaal ook in het Nederlands?

Mathematics = Art! Art = Mathematics!

sacha vries2005-01-16 15:12:08
Very impressive indeed!!

didem2005-01-15 21:26:58
The only way I can express Escher inside me is "wonderful"!The way he sees the world around himself opens people -who recognizes the perfections of the nature every single day- a new world inner their mind, and makes an excellent combination with their brains and their hearts.Absolutely fantastic! ! !

Sosthen Hennekam2005-01-15 13:55:13
Escher is still very powerfull. The endless zooming in can be made easily by using some chroma. An Escher screensaver would be very nice.

Linda Carrasco2005-01-14 20:50:52
AMAZING!! Escher's work just blows my mind. Muchas gracias desde el Ecuador.

Ivan Hlušička2005-01-12 09:36:57
Escher je genijalac i veliko nadahnuće nama običnim smrtnicima!!! mAth : arT * rulEs

Escher I love all your art work.

Marc van den Akker2005-01-11 04:21:54
Wat een knap gemaakt filmpje. Over het algemeen wordt ik niet vrolijk van de grouwe sombere stijl van Esher, maar dit is een fraai affect! Nu Kleur!
