Escher Cube Solved In Second Life

There’s a nice sculpture exhibition by various artists at the Shengri La sim, of which the highlight is this, the only one I managed to photograph before SL went zonky again and logged me out.

It’s an interpretation of the impossible Escher cube, also known as a Penrose or Necker Cube . And whereas real world models can only be viewed from one perspective, Kaloss Gausman’s built a version of it that revolves and the illusion still works. Neat.
