|I am highly impressed. Your work here is outstanding. I would enjoy seeing these techniques applied to other prints of Escher. This site is a fantastic teaching resource.|

|Wow! Indrukwekkend! En duidelijk uitgelegd.
Zeg, zouden jullie het Droste plaatje ook zo kunnen renderen, ter illustratie?
Als ik de mpg filmpjes afspeel met mplayer -loop, dan
wordt tussen de loops in het window even gesloten. Weten jullie daar iets op?

|Yum, a delicious mix of art and math. When will we have the screen-saver version? ;-)|

|Congratulations on making a very sophisticated subject quite clear. I am missing a link to a web site where those of us have some mathematical knowledge but are not "expert" could go a little deeper into the mapping|

|Fascinating. The self similarity is another example of a fractal process. The relationship of these drawings to the discrete fractal processes is very interesting. I would encourage you all to pursue further examples. I will have to try playing it on some other system to make the animation work.|
|Even if I had difficulty opening all the frames...fascinatingly ingenious! A thorough poietic dismantling of the senses reversed and re-assembled! Congratulations! Who, please, does the filling in?|

|I enjoyed the information about "Print Gallery". I like so many others didn't realize that there was something missing. I have been a fan of Escher ever since I saw his obituary in Time magazine. They printed "Waterfall" in the obituary and this caused me to look at his other works.

|The site is wonderful! The combination of Escher's view of the world and the mathematical appreciation of this view fills what for me is a void that seems to have been bothering me for a long time, but I never quite understood exactly why. It's like the void in his drawing, I think. As a scientist I am able to appreciate both the art and the analysis, and I am now richer for having both aspects to enjoy, for which I thank you.|

|For the multimedia impaired under us, for Unices the simplest mpeg-decoder I have been able to find is
Berkeley MPEG Player:
It compiles without a glitch under Linux Redhat 6.0, using
cp Imakefile.proto Imakefile; xmkmf; make
To get around the problem that, according to mpeg_play, the mpegs on this site have an improper ending, just skip the last frame:
mpeg -loop -end 398 bclip_1_1.mpg
works nicely for me.|
