In 2019 the Escher Museum in The Hague asked a group of school children to make three of Escher’s drawings come to life, with the specific purpose of allowing them to be ‘seen’ by people with visual impairment.
Together with De Bende Rotterdam we created the three installations based on these designs, resulting in three unique objects that can be explored using touch, sound, feel and interaction. This way the mathematical and puzzling character of the original drawings by M.C. Escher were given a new dimension for a broader audience.
Upon detection of a visitor, sounds and stories are used to engage users into exploring of the object. Step-by-step the story is revealed. Through touch and interaction the objects communicate the same qualities captures in the original graphic artworks, opening the work of M.C. Escher to a broader audience.
