I had to do a paper in my mate class about MC Escher. I had no idea who he was or why we were looking at him in math class. But I found that he was a great man. My favorite picture that he did was the Mezzotint. I love the skull in the eye. To me it says to look death in the eye. I maybe compleatly wrong but this is coming from a 16 year old student. I have found that I like a lot of his work and i had to thank my math teacher for making us do this paper. Melissa

This is exciting and fascinating work whether seem by the eyes of an mathematician or an artist. Thank you for an excellent and thorough explanation, and topped off with superb animation.

I visit in Madrid, yesterdey, the great exposition about this artist. I think it is marvellous¡¡ Pensaba que era un autor minoritario, pero me encontré con una cola de casi una hora.Mereció la pena. Es fantastica.

Genial, me gusta, un trabajo impresionante gracias Very good, i like your impressive work! thanks!

Mooi werk! Het is jammer dat jullie de witte rand aan de bovenkant van de prent in de galerij zo groot hebben gemaakt, groter dan in het origineel van Escher. Nu is het wachten op een programma om je eigen foto's te transformeren.

Interessant, jullie onderzoek! Wat jullie volgens mij niet weten: Escher ontwierp ook een blik voor Droste, waarvan er ook een paar duizend zijn gemaakt! Als jullie belangstelling hebben: ik ken iemand die zo'n blik heeft. Cees Bronsveld, Rotterdam

I've just seen an expo of Escher's works in Madrid (Spain) and this one has shocked me. They have put the paint side by side with a TV playing the animations you have here and I couldn't stop looking. Simply amazing. When I returned home I started to look the animation in the web and find them here. Thank you.

Jos2007-01-31 20:11:36
I liked the animation. It was cool!

Al Shepparad2007-01-30 15:15:08
Can anyone offer me information on how I can make photos similar to the Escher images? I would greatly appreciate the help. Al Sheppard Los Angeles

Thank you so much for writing such an amazing screen-saver and distributing it for free !

felipe carvajal2007-01-26 01:46:56
Sencillamente impresionante,como Scher dijo:" Me siento mas cerca de los matematicos que de mis colegas."

Tom Braunlich2007-01-25 03:12:01
The animation is one of the most amazing things I've ever seen; truly. Great job. Your work lives up to Escher's genius!

bob macdonld2007-01-18 19:18:15

bob macdonld2007-01-18 19:16:17

Jelle van den brink2007-01-15 15:06:47
We moesten wel heel erg lachen om de animatie waarbij we steeds maar weer het mannetje naar de schilderijen zagen kijken, maar ik vind het ook heel erg nep dat jullie ook Escher-tekeningen gaan maken. Jelle, 7 jaar

tessallations suck to make but they are sweet to look at when they are done... rock on M. C. Escher!!!

Frank Sjoukes2006-12-08 12:07:51
Ik heb altijd bewondering gehad voor het werk van Escher. De matematisch achtergronden hebben mij altijd verbaasd. Nu ik dit zie vraag ik mij af of dit ook met andere platen van Escher gedaan kan worden.

Jensen Roth 2006-12-07 13:24:40
This is a wonderful site and is a wealth of information for any math or art student. Thanks, Jensen Roth

The art and mathematics integration is indeed amazing.

Pat Elvin2006-11-26 23:44:32
You've expanded my enjoyment of Escher's work tremendousley. Many thanks

I attended a talk by Professor Lenstra at the U of Washington on 11-15-2006. It was WONDERFUL! What a witty, urban man. I'm an amateur math person, but I found his lecture very clear. I also enjoyed the questions he asked (he stumped me every time). Since I've long loved Escher's work, it compounded my delight to see the mathematics behind this particular work of art. Thanks to the collective group for the time and effort on this analyis and animation enterprise. Sincerely, Rich Bauer
