Escher’s “Relativity” in Legos


“Daniel Shiu and I worked on this as a joint project after we finished our rendition of Escher’s ‘Ascending and Descending’, making it our fourth Escher picture rendered in LEGO. Once again, no camera tricks, but the picture has to be taken from exactly the right place, and boy did we get tired of trying to find where that place was. The whole thing took five or six evenings spread over two or three weeks. Most of the last evening was taken up with setting up the lighting the way we wanted it and trying to get the camera position just right…”

So says Andrew Lipson.
