OK . Im giving this one to the pros here. Can any one find out if this is real and how the hell do they do it?

My brain cannot comprehend how this was done. My mind has been literally blown. I am dead now.

It was a project to start a myth, it's not real, just clever editing


www.kickstarter.com...


The myth is that located in Rochester, NY, is the Escherian Stairwell, an architectural marvel that seems to violate the laws of physics and basic logic by looping back into itself. In order to lend credence to this myth, we're creating an episode for a family-friendly science show that demonstrates the staircase in action, various clips from a 1997 documentary with prominent thinkers grappling with the existence of this apparent contradiction and pontificating on its implications, and a whole slew of supplemental online materials for today's internet savvy audience to stumble across while trying to see if this thing is real (websites, scholarly articles, fan-pages, blogs, etc.). Help us build the myth!

Reminds me of the work of artist Max Escher. Like the perpetual staircase or waterwheel !

Can't be what it appears to be of course, so there must be some collusion or trickery involved.

Very clever though !

Yes That was the first thing that crossed my mind. Escher !
But That is an impossible thing, its an illusion as such this apparently is all edited and just a big myth, people having fun I guess

Quite, papazen, whilst Escher's clever manipulation of three dimensional objects works brilliantly on two dimensional paper, as a drawing,, I don't see how it could possibly be done in reality.

A terrific post by the way, thank you !

Thank you stormcell ! - These Lego 3 D models based on Escher's work must have been produced for careful photography ? Very clever, though !

I could do this without editing.


I simply need a set of twins, dressed the same.


Nobody here's a magician, eh? One of the cardinal constants of illusion...using identical twins.

Those were my initial thoughts too Gazrok ! No other explanation, other than CGI, which it
did 'nt appear to be.

....And some stooges, paid or unpaid !
