Dutch artist M.C. Escher’s famous impossible stairs — which cross infinitely — has now been reconstructed in real life by architecture firm dRMM on the grounds of London’s Tate Modern as part of the London Design Festival. The art installation combines 15 wooden stairways and is perfectly designed to bewilder visitors.
An animator of unmatched creativity, Blu’s films are like M.C. Escher on acid. Fascinating as they are creepy to watch, you’ll find his shorts harder to turn away from than a 20 car pile-up. Just to be clear, when I say shorts, I’m talking about his films.
I feel like Rotterdam-based artist Daan Botlek could make some really disturbing and effective infographics. He combines the impulsive busy-ness of Keith Herring with the mind-bending surrealism of M.C.Escher.
Watching this Shinya Sato directed M.C. Escher-inspired video for Chateau Marmont’s song One Hundred Realities will make you want to grab a bong and skip doing your homework. It’s a futuro sound with retro, tripped out visuals.
