This series projects images from the paintings of Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) onto a model, Asimira, using a mini-beamer.
M.C. Escher was a Dutch graphic artist who made mathematicallyinspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzo-tints. His work features mathematical objects and operations including impossible objects, explorations of infinity, reflection, symmetry, perspective, truncated and stellated polyhedra, hyperbolic geometry, and tessellations.
M.C. Escher’s work has a strong three-dimensional geometric feel. By projecting his work onto a model, we get an additional series of bends and curves. While the model’s movements disrupt the strict mathematical precision of Escher’s creations, they also soften his calculations, and allow us to appreciate his work from the perspective of a female canvas.
