Screen Saver

Escher's eerie, astonishing experiments in perspective and perception will add depth and distraction to your desktop. This screensaver contains twenty-seven drawings, paintings, lithographs, and woodcuts. Many are in color.

This software is easy to install on Mac- or PC-based systems, our screen savers can be set up to cycle continuously, changing images at any interval the user selects, or used as wallpaper. (That is: one image comes on at startup and stays put until a different one is selected.) Image sets can be customized so that the user need only see favorites. Detailed information (media, dimensions, date, etc.) for each image, and a concise biography of the artist, may be had at the click of a mouse.

M. C. Escher

It's probably just as well that Maurits Cornelis Escher (Dutch, 1898-1972) decided not to pursue his early training as an architect. Rejecting the logic that maintains that one plus one must equal two, he created structures that flout perspective, scorn gravity, and assume narrative and infinite recursion among their specifications.

Fortunately for both art and architecture, Escher's absurd, impeccable principles physics are confined to his miraculous drawings and engravings. Here his outlaw perspectives and rogue geometrics are navigable - up to a point. Combining meticulous technique, subtle, sardonic humor and rigorous attention to the physical behavior of imaginary substances, Escher invites us to consider a world in which walls, floors, and ceilings may share the same elastic plane and flights of stairs ascend to the bottom. Physical laws apply to this world - but not the ones we know.

After attending the School for Architecture and Decorative Arts in Haarlem, Escher moved with his wife to Rome, from where he wandered every Spring to the Italian countryside. These trips provided subjects for his art. But after being deprived of the inspiring Italian landscapes, Escher now made voyages into his own imagination. His ingenious new designs reflected the order and beauty he observed in a world that often seemed chaotic. In their manipulations of space, dimension, and perspective, Escher's works bind the surreal to the scientific, linking them in outrageous but quite logical problems.
