Video: The Art of the Impossible: MC Escher and Me - Secret Knowledge

IMHO this is some seriously awesome stuff. I don’t know much about the guy, but I’ve always thought Escher’s art was pretty neat. I knew he liked to play with geometry, but I didn’t realize just how much. Wow.

Yes. Awesome.

Time to re-read GEB.

Except I'm struggling through an online math course in my spare time.

thanks for posting these videos, I've always been a huge Escher fan. A few years back just for fun & CAD practice I modeled some of his more mathematical 3 dimensional images & created stereoscopic images of some of them. The stereoscopic images are "cross-eye", which means you cross your eyes & merge the 2 images to see them in 3D, no viewer or glasses required.
