HEy evorbody! I am from the Netherlands and I have for school a workpiece for mathematics. And they ask me: call all the platonic and Archimedean Solids, who are in the picture from Escher work the "stars". Can anybody help me please. And sorry if my englisch isn't very good. fieke.

MANDAR DIBUJOS DE ESCHER

Hi, Went to the lecture at the Field Institute in Toronto last night -- very interesting. Then I went home and looked at my Escher book -- he was trying to visually represent infinity -- just wondering have you ever tried to apply your same methodology -- beer & bread etc. - to a real life depiction namely setting up two mirrors creating infinite reflections and then if possible photographing this and applying the overlying grid -- if so I would be most interested in being directed to a website image -- if not why not ? dag, Trudy

Beautiful! Anyone teaching covering spaces and fundamental groups should use this example. Too bad the associated elliptic functions don't make an appearance, just the elliptic curves. But it's still pretty amazing.

Hellow guest book, this is a very coole site . I don't like this things normally , but these , i like very much! Bey bey .

Dieuwertje2004-06-15 07:30:01
This is a great site, it really shows you what Escher can be capable of, and that sure is a lot. My only question is; how did you discouver the math in it and such? I mean, you tell us about where the math is in his paintings and how you worked with it (with a programme you recouver what the picture looks like without rotating), but how did you discouver this? But this really is a great site! Keep it up! Greetings, Dieuwertje

How comes that Mondriaan with his childish kubism is being much more praised and known than Escher's mindblowing works? But then, it is like why some people like eating red peppers (which numbs the tong for other sense of tasting) above black chocolate... it really is unfair the way inventors a la washington carver, beta-scientists, artists (not the decorators) and philosophers live and die in the ignorance of Britney Spearses and Justin Timberlakes

[The previous reaction is like that of Blake to Newton's discovery of the physics of a rainbow. The rainbow remains poetic even if it can be understood. To some of us it becomes even more poetic.] Well done! Should have used this for my course on Reflection. After having looked at the animation of the straight picture while zooming in for a while and then having stopped the movement, one may observe an appearent zooming out. Meditators sometimes have an observation of an observation of ... read more

Adding to my post just before this one, I just wanted to add that I have been an M.C. Escher fan for years and have an IB (International Baccalaureate) art degree. I just want Escher to be seen for who he was.

Ryan Thompson2004-06-01 18:42:44
You are killing the image of a legend…you are killing the image of an artist. After looking into this mathematical concept and the actual art of M.C. Escher (specifically "The Print"), I have found that you have looked way too far into the subject. Has anyone else failed to see that the founders of this concept have over-evaluated this piece to a frightful extreme? Look at the original print...it is beautiful and a masterpiece to say the least, but all of this is unnecessary and meaningless ... read more

I am in possession of a print by MC Escher titled Stampato I.Crata-Roma. Can anyone tell me anything about the history of this print? As in, when and where was it done? Before his name is a 2-'30.

Leah 2004-05-13 20:09:04
the animation of the escher print is amazing. i would like to see others added on to this section using similar affects.

Yuri Lim & Perry van Oosterum2004-05-13 11:25:45
We are 2 Dutch mathteachers/students. We nearly understand the whole mathematical structure behind the Print Gallery. We almost finished our investigation. We are trying to make it more easely for those who aren't that good in maths. We are going to publish our article on First Class Client in July.

Mallory2004-05-11 22:33:48
This is so interesting. I love art and I love figuring out what art means. Thanks!
