Art - Andrew Lipson & Daniel Shiu recreate Escher with... Legos!

M.C. Escher was one of my first loves in terms of art... I would daydream about wandering in his worlds the way Alice wandered in wonderland. Nostalgia set aside, these two fellows, Andrw Lipson and Daniel Shiu recreated some of his more famous pieces in legos (with variable levels of success)! Check it out (website is here)!
I've posted all the Escher construction they've done so far, but there are other neat mathematical sculpture and pieces of lego engineering that worth a looksee... Oh and a couple dilbert statues if you're into that sort of thing. : j
