Universe, daydream, infinite, geometric, repetition, magician, perception, mirror, game… The epithets to describe M.C. Escher intertwine in our social imaginary, travel between two worlds, the real one and the one that exists in our imagination; a bloody battle between the order established by the laws and socially accepted norms, and the bravery of a genius, who tried and managed to cross the limits of the physics to capture in his works what he saw in the beyond.

Escher's interest in architecture led him to a fascinating journey through the study of forms, patterns, perspectives and visual games.
