A short movie inspired on Escher's works and a free vision on how it could be his workplace.

When this animation project started to take their first steps I intended to bring life to a large and extensive still life, flying over it in a manner similar to that fantastic intro created for the opening credits of a French film called Delicatessen.

But then I still had not found the motif, the main characters of the action. So I looked into that enormous and inexhaustible source of inspiration that is Escher and tried to imagine how it could be his workplace, what things would surround an artist like him, so deeply interested in science in general and mathematics in particular. This, though, from a completely imaginary, free and invented point of view.

And here is the result of that process, accompanied by the beautiful song "Lost Song" composed by Ólafur Arnalds, an Icelandic musician. Hope you like.

Cristobal Vila, February 2012, Saragossa, Spain.
