ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Here's a nice gallery of video-game-themed fine art remixes, including this curiously appropriate Escher/Portal remix.

Very nice, but I thought there would be portals, to make it even more brain-bending
Now you’re thinking with. . . umm. . .
I really like the simplicity of the Jade with a Pearl Earring one.
It turns out that four of those are my artwork. It’s good to see them getting thrown about .
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.
Custom level plz.
(Although I wonder if it would be disorientating to play…)
now it’s time for an Escher/Hesher mashup.
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.
Come on GLaDOS, it’s not really science unless they have SOME sort of chance…
