    M.C. Escher and infinity

    During the Escher workshops in the Grafische Werkplaats, participants created textures with M.C. Escher as a source of inspiration. These textures were digitized and used as surfaces of a virtual space. In a boundless space, a path is clear that goes on forever.

    Eight contemporary makers from The Hague investigate what the theme of infinity means in their work in relation to graphics and the work of Escher.

    During a working period in the Grafische Werkplaats, they are stimulated and supported to discover new graphic techniques and to use them for new work on the theme of infinity. After an introduction to the graphic technique of their choice, the artists dived into the workshop this summer and were given the freedom to work on their project. In this way they show Escher’s infinity, not only technically, but also philosophically.
