M.C. Escher

Some crazy people made Lego sculptures of famous Escher drawings. How did they create in 3-D what appears to be physically impossible? It turns out they’re just “camera tricks”, as evinced by these awesome videos at the official Escher web site. A short bio of the Dutch artist can be found here. When I first saw these drawing as a kid, I thought they were cool because they looked plausible at first glance but close analysis showed that they weren’t really possible. It turns out, in a way, that they really are possible. Neat! I always thought these crazy Lego people who make elaborate Lego sculptures just need to grow up, but now I kind of want to get a bunch of Legos and start building.
