One of M.C. Escher‘s most mindboggling inventions is the Droste Effect, in which an image is endlessly repeated within itself. Escher used this effect in his “Print Gallery“, but was limited in his reduction by the possibilities of his medium. A team of researchers at the University Of Leiden later used the possibilities of new technologies to create an infinite canvas, allowing Escher’s artwork literally endlessly quoting intself
A group of German cartoonists has used this method in a collaborative artwork called the Zoomquilt. This Maelstrom of art embeds each work within the previous one. And since all artists seem to have found their inspiriation in the works of Bosch, Breugel and the like, the result is even more mind-boggling.
Not to be watched when drunk !
(Thank you, Cartoonist)
