Short film takes an imaginary look at M.C. Escher's trippy work space

Director Cristobal Vila of Etérea Studios has created Inspirations, a nifty cinematic short that offers a fictionalized interpretation of M.C. Escher's desk and the various objects that informed his mathematical art. Explains Vila of this piece:

[I] tried to imagine how it could be his workplace, what things would surround an artist like him, so deeply interested in science in general and mathematics in particular. This, though, from a completely imaginary, free and invented point of view.

A beautiful little movie! But I kind of like this one of Escher's famous "Print Gallery." If you are unfamiliar with the work, it's a recursive picture that contains the gallery that contains it. It's the visual equivalent of "this sentence is false."
