why his painting have no color?

for Kaka poop2008-03-02 05:35:42
The reason that his toilet is so far away he can't even run there in an hour!

Escher is so smart, I even need to do a research project on him what a good thing to have this website!

George Wu2008-03-02 05:31:10
What a nice thing you guys have done, but it is still not perfect .

As logical it is, these pages are great for the information.

just discovered both escher and droste but find it similar to work done recently by banyi. Mostly sold as children books. I was wondering if there is a connection.

Escher is sooo sweet!

literary ''intrigueing'' . I saw this site about 2 years ago when i worked as a librarian in a lawyersoffice. The term "DROSTE-effect" is also applicable in some cases, but i could not find an example. Some days ago i visited the exhibition '' the dream of Piranesi in the Teylers museum in Haarlem " There you can see and experience Escher's great inspirator. And ! a reason to get back to this site also! BTW, I own some old DROSTE tin's , however i am storing tea in it...

Kakapoop2008-01-28 14:31:51
what is the reason Escher never made it to the toilet on time

John Rood2008-01-03 00:00:53
Very Cool! Math, CG, the modern world! Completion of an inspiration.

I just watched your Princeton lecture and it was great. I hope you guys have recieved a lot of money to start your next project. I have been making some short loop stop motion animations and ran into some funny math problems luckily my little brother works for a company doing AI research. Any way good luck with your projects in the future.

ok guys is it me in the "droste effect", "The resulting Droste picture is preserved under scaling by a factor 256=28. You can view this picture as a cycle of 8 frames, each time zooming in by a factor of 2." there is a white face in that picture (the patch of white next to the painting of the boat.)

My grand parents were Conrad and My granparents were Conrad and Rose Droste. Could they be the same ? My Mother was born in America but my Grand parents came from Germany

Looking for interesting facts

chris2007-11-29 02:21:35
pretty cool i like what you did i enjoyed the videos it helped to show what he did inside of his works with the droste effect it was cool to see them straigtened out also

Mish2007-11-28 06:11:25
Wow! That's a really amazing peice of artwork. I'd been wondering about that white spot for quite some time. I'm glad there's some people out here who attempt stuff like this!

LASZLO AJKAI PAPP2007-11-27 21:27:06

Far away in the heavenly abode of the great god Indra, there is a wonderful net which has been hung by some cunning artificer in such a manner that it stretches out infintely in all directions. In accordance with the extravagant tastes of deities, the artificer has hung a single glittering jewel in each "eye" of the net, and since the net itself is infinite in dimension, the jewels are infinite in number. There hang the jewels, glittering like stars in the first magnitude, a wonderful sight to ... read more

Freak..but talented!

Thank you for the great Escher screen-saver.

cory ench2007-11-03 19:43:06
I have been studying Eschers art for years being an artist myself and this project of your brings so much more clarity to how Escher's print works. Amazing project and very well done! :)

David Kranz2007-11-02 18:23:14
I just viewed Jean Bergeron's film last evening. I had to visit your site to see the visual details of the solution - wonderful!

Jill Houghton2007-11-02 04:28:20
Wow! and WoW! Fantastic Site: beautiful work beautifully presented. I particularly like your set up of the grid page! Thanks for making it available to plebs like me.

Wes Devore2007-10-30 03:39:15
I was able to attend a lecture by Dr. de Smit at Western Kentucky University over this topic which was fascinating but I was unable to describe it to friends. Thanks for the site

I love chocolate repeatedly.

snap het verband niet tussen ESCHER en het Droste effect

maria de meersman2007-10-06 19:17:44
just curious

Min Zhang(unicorn)2007-09-15 14:43:21
Sorry,my English is poor.But I have a question. Does the droste effect have the similar idea of the concept of Friedrieh Nietzsche --the heart's reflection on the world,heart is a part of the world,the reflection contains the heart itself(in my word,not accurate)? Thank you.

Chris2007-09-13 15:46:13
I never knew that there was more to these peices of art than what i have seen at this wesite today!!!

gordon 2007-09-04 04:16:07
This is by far MC's best I have been privlidged enough to know his work because his popularity was not recognized in the small town of Gulfport, Ms. as I have lived there I have friends who collect art in the colorodo and texas areas where he was more recognized thanks for the visual stimulation that I have found on this site.

Matt2007-08-14 19:26:20
This is a great site and excellent explanation of the Droste effect. I enjoyed all the content this site had to offer.

Joe Heft2007-07-29 21:59:34
Interesting site.

William Post2007-07-20 21:06:51
Keep me informed.

F.J. van der Vat2007-07-15 15:46:56
Nice work to solve the \\\"problem\\\", on the other hand; the blind spot brings some mystery into it now that is gone forever.

F.J. van der Vat2007-07-15 15:42:07
Mooi dat dat is opgelost, aan de andere kant; die blinde vlek heeft ook wel iets mysterieus dat is nu voorgoed verdwenen.

unicorn2007-07-11 17:06:53
Thank you.

I'm doing a project on Escher, and one of the assignments on this project is to write a report on one of his works. I chose Print Gallery, and, lo and behold, I found this site. The Drost Effect will certainly be a great addition, you are most definitely going down as a source. Nice work!

Han-xi Wang2007-07-09 16:52:48
Wow, it was amazing the work you had done , WELL DONE!!! Escher is one of my favourite artists. Maths is all over his works, and it really reminds me of Leonardo Da Vinci!

CK Lin2007-07-08 11:59:18
A successful project. Nicely done.

GrfxDziner2007-07-07 21:45:33
Thank you so much for this information. This is truly fantastic. You make the effect understood so easilly. Wonderful animations and step by step.

Michael Karpman2007-07-05 20:16:14
It occurred to me that the video would also be interesting if viewed in reverse so that we would get the perspective of moving out from the print.

Miki2007-07-01 18:45:13
Fantastic site; very informative.It blow me away; I will visit many, many times.

Michael Karpman2007-06-22 06:28:16
Your accomplishment is every bit as amazing as Escher's. You have illustrated something profound, beyond just the art and mathematics of your creation. No matter how great a talent someone possesses their work can be improved upon. I encourage you to make available a large size print of your "improved" Print Gallery. When I say large, I mean large enough that at least two levels of recursion will be visible to the naked eye. If you decide to sell these prints please get in touch with me by email.
