M.C. Escher Stairwell — Amazing and Real! (Video)

Most of us have seen the drawings of famed Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, best known for his creations that violated the laws of physics. Well, at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, they brought his most famous work to life in the astonishing ‘Escherian Stairwell’.

Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898 – 1972) was born in the Netherlands and once described his art as ‘delving into impossible reality’. His most famous works include ‘Drawing Hands’, Sky and Water’, and, the inspiration for the stairwell, ‘Ascending and Descending’, in which people go up and down a staircase in a seemingly endless loop.

Well, designers at RIT, specifically film/animation graduate student Michael Lacanilao, brought Escher’s amazing vision to life and, at the small university in Rochester, New York, people experience the artist’s vision of infinity every day on their way to class. But the question is, does anyone ever arrive?
