Hallucii – An “impossible” Movie

 

 

Goo-Shun Wang created this brilliant movie “Hallucii” in 2006 at the MFA Computer Art, School of Visual Arts, New York. It carries forward the creative torch in the spirit of the Penroses and M. C. Escher (see below).

 

Enjoy the level-transcending camera metapher and subtle details, like the bottle label.

The chain of inspiration…

M. C. Escher (picture on the left) published in 1960 his well-known lithography “Ascending, descending” (on the right). Its design was based on a figure (bottom left) in the paper published by the Penroses’ in 1958, and there was a letter exchange between them.
