parts shapes and relationships
Parts, Shapes, and Relationships
  • Tessellations

    • Altered them to take the form of animals
    • Each change had to be compensated
parts shapes and relationships8
Parts, Shapes, and Relationships
  • Metamorphosis Images
    • Start with two-dimensional tessellation
    • Shift to three dimensions and back
    • Number of visible planes increases and decreases
parts shapes and relationships10

  • Strange Loop images
    • Appear to be elevated
    • Actually on the same plane
    • Physically impossible structures
tools and methods

  • Used basic geometric shapes in his artwork
  • Repetition
  • Symmetry

Size and Quantity
  • For a presentation the tessellations would have had to be a manageable size but it really could have gone on infinitely in size.
  • The metamorphosis images- long and thin, to be read from left to right.
why this is important
Why this is important?
  • Escher’s work shows how art can be enhanced by math, and vice versa
  • Brings depth to mathematics
  • Helps us understand geometry
