Escher, Legos and Ingenuity

Daniel Shui and Andrew Lipson built the Lego creation above. Andrew is a self-described "nerd" and enjoys Escher, Legos, juggling and math (like most nerds). His website (www.andrewlipson.com) is worth checking out - it includes the original Escher drawings and woodcuts for a side-by-side comparison (big points for accuracy and detail), as well as “behind-the-scenes” photographs of construction and effect techniques. I've placed the two versions of Escher's "Relativity" below for comparison:

Here’s some other works that Andrew and Daniel have produced (some of these rely on photo/perspective effects):

M.C. Escher's "Ascending":

M.C. Escher's "Balcony":

M.C. Escher's "Belvedere":

M.C. Escher's "Waterfall":
