Relativity is the lithograph print by the Dutch artist M. C. Esher in 1953.

The TRP360 3D version

You can walk into this version.  I did.  And got some pictures
-
I walked up the stairs to look around.

And I walked down the other stairs
-
-
It looks so normal from here
-
-
But not from here
-
-
Rotated, it looks better
-
I am using a pose ball to hold that position against virtual gravity.
-
-
This is normal
-
-

Same view, weird pose
-
-
Rotation makes it look normal
-
-
You really have to be there
-
-
To appreciate the weirdness
-
-
Otherwise, you won't believe 
it is all the same place
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
But it really is the same place
-
-
Try it for yourself

  1. A really well-written and interesting article on one of MC Escher's best pics. Thanks. I love these 3D versions of Escher's work and I'm sure he would have done too.
