M. C. Escher



The Dutch artist M.C. Escher was fascinated by the circular nature of reality.

Escher was discovered by the psychedelic kids back in the 60’s. They (we?) were fascinated by the notion that he could actually illustrate a kind of expanded consciousness. But although we claimed him as a fellow traveller, nobody on a “mind expanding” drug ever managed to draw anything like this. Proving? That drugs are only of interest to the user.
