Artist M. C. Escher famously created “impossible” visual illusions, such as never-ending staircases, perpetually flowing streams and off-kilter perspectives. Such illusions help to reveal how the brain creates its own reality. At the Boston Museum of Science’s Inside the Mind of M. C. Escher, visitors can explore these optical phenomena and even try their hand at re-creating an Escher.
