Where We Live: Art And Optical Illusion
M. C. Escher is known for his visual puzzles and impossible structures
The artist M. C. Escher is known for his etchings and drawings of visual puzzles and impossible structures.
You may have had a poster of his work on your dorm room wall, but now now you can see one of the most comprehensive Escher collections at the New Britain Museum of American Art – one hundred thirty works spanning the artists long career.
Today, we’ll hear about the exhibit, Impossible Reality, and learn more about who M. C. Escher was. We’ll also talk to a professor from the Yale Perception and Cognition Lab who’ll explain just how it works when our brain processes optical illusions.
