The Fantastic World of M.C. Escher (1980)

Director:
Michele Emmer


Dokumentarac o umetniku čije ste upečatljive radove sigurno već videli, jer ima ih svuda, ali možda niste znali ko je zapravo autor. Inače, moja sestra je feliki fan M.C. Eschera te me je uputila na njega, inače realno pojma ne bih imao o kakvoj faci se radi.

Dakle, svi znamo za njegove crteže i mozaike i još brdo tako tih istripovanih momenata od kojih te zaboli mozak jer ne možeš da pronikneš kako toga uopšte može neko da se doseti, stoga nam ovde pored biografije, matematičari i razni drugi stručnjaci, pojašnjavaju na koji način je on sve to crtao, i otkrivaju neke sitne tajne koje možda i nismo primetili na njegovim radovima. Jako zanimljiv dokumentarac, sa uživanjem sam ga pogledao. (50 min)


IMDB

"A portrait of the life and influences of the mysterious Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972), an man who has mesmerized the public with his uniquely bizarre graphic designs that are often drenched in mind boggling mathematical principles. An in-depth examination of M.C. Escher's work through interviews with his friends and mathematicians, computer animated recreations, an investigation into his Spanish and Italian sources of inspiration, and of course, a look at the artist's amazing prints. Maurits Cornelis Escher was an amazing artist as well as a superb applied mathematician. His figures apply various forms of symmetry in ways that can keep you looking for hours, at the end of which you will find yet another pattern inside those you saw when you first looked. While somewhat primitive, the computer animations of the figures allow you to better visualize how the figure was constructed.The most illustrative techniques are when the narrator uses a simple device of a tack in the figure. This allows the narrator to rotate a figure around the tack, which demonstrates how the figures are symmetric in alternate quadrants and equal in quadrants separated by one.Many of Escher's figures are based on what are called impossible figures. These are geometric structures that cannot exist in three-dimensional space, but can be projected on a two-dimensional surface. Roger Penrose narrates this portion, demonstrating that sections of the figure are possible, and if it is cut and rotated the right way, appears to be a different figure."
