Escher’s Belvedere Optical Illusion

In Escher’s Belvedere Optical Illusion if you look at the beams they cross over from front to back, but how do we know which is the front and which is the back? This is physically impossible in a 3-Dimensional world but in 2d can give an alternate reality. If you notice the piece of paper on the floor (bottom left) shows a 3d cube almost as a clue to the belvedere’s structure. The man on the latter climbs from inside the gate in the lower platform then ends up on the outside above even tho its straight up!

Escher Waterfall Optical Illusion

The Escher waterfall Optical Illusion is composed of two beams that rest upon each other at opposite right angles. Escher drew his diagrams in such a way that you could not see a single mistake yet it dose not make sense logically. The water wheel is powered by the falling water, then it flows up to the top and back down to the wheel.

Below is Eschers original waterfall diagram followed by a few recreations, even one created in Lego!

Lego has been a favorite pass time of children for years, how ever some people can take lego very seriously. We have brought you everything from the Lego Olympics to Escher waterfalls in lego. During a trip to Europe with some friends we came across a place called Lego Land which had some of the wildest large scale lego creations I haver seen.  Legoland had gigantic sculptures created soley out of lego, moving ships (on under water tracks) even lego trains and planes you could take a ride one.  Below is a collection of some of the most extreme lego land has to offer!

Audi Billboard Optical Illusion

Audi is a high end German automobile. Audi’s new Billboard Advertisement plays quite the eye tricks with you.  The top of the bridge appears to be the sky and buildings, but if you look at the ladder connecting the two it makes no sense? Is this some new funky latter that twist to different dimensions? Audi has developed this MC Escher style advertisement to grab your attention and keep it. The only problem is I think people would be more confused about what the heck is going on then noticing that its an Audi ad.

The House That Swift Built Optical Illusion

The House That Swift Built Optical Illusion is one of those three dimensional 2D pictures sent in by Jen S. This picture is real neat in the fact that your mind is all over the place trying to figure out how it all works. Are those stairs going up or down? These types of illusions are generaly inspired off some of the works of MC Eschers Works. Such as Escher’s Belvedere, Escher’s Ascending Descending stairs or the famous Waterfall Optical Illusion. So with all these mind games can you get a good grasp on the reality that exists in this picture!

The House that Swift built Optical Illusion - this is one place you can defiantly get lost!
