mathematics and art

When thinking of the combination of mathematics and art, one name came to mind. One artist, M.C. Escher, uses stuctures that are impossible but fascinating. In one of his works, Ascending and Descending, a group of stairs seems to rising but actually people walking on them end up at the same elvation after walking around the square-shaped staircase. He also uses math, peticularly in symmetry, to show shapes and objects and the shapes in between objects that form other objects. Some of his pictures show his fascination of close by and far away objects and high and low objects as well. His works continue to fascinate people because of his imagination of the world and possibilities of shape and form that lie in mathematics and art.
