    I really like the simplicity of the Jade with a Pearl Earring one.

    I loved this at first glance, then immediately set about considering how to solve it.  Then I realized that, if its gravity rules were true to Escher’s Relativity, pretty much any surface would have its own gravity, making the chamber trivially easy to escape.

    Unless there turns out to be no actual switch to release the cube in the dispenser, in which case it’s just cruel.

    (Although I wonder if it would be disorientating to play…)

    The original artist of this work is Kasper Filipsen, and the work is called “Relatively Portal”. He describes this project here: http://linkitch.dk/Gallery.aspx?ID=2 The relevant DeviantArt page, where he originally posted the work, is http://linkitch.deviantart.com/art/Relatively-Portal-76837871

    That DeviantArt page contains a super high resolution version of this image as well (24 Mb), for those interested.
