|Ascending and Descending|
A model depicting my interpretation of M. C. Escher's "Ascending and Descending" lithograph.
In 1960 Mauritz Cornelis Escher produced
this famous lithograph. I have loved his optical illusions ever since I
first saw them as a child, and could think of no greater challenge for
HADD7 than to construct an impossible building. (Some ideas seem a lot
better after alcohol.) The two major problems were the creation of a
working plan, and the constraint that it had to built using Hirst Arts
pieces. Unfortunately for me, Bruce hasn’t yet gotten round to making
impossible four dimensional moulds, and Escher could make his arches any
size he liked – and he seems to have liked a lot of different ones.
