Of Elephants & Mice

-Dominique Ribault (French)
Professor of Mathematics, artist, Mission Laique Francaise

"Inspired by Escher and Vasarely, my artworks use recent mathematical theory about the relationships between topology and group theory. I have created tessellations involving planes, polygons, logarithmic spirals, cylinders, spheres, tori and knots for all the 19 families of plane tessellations"

Interesting, considering that this was recent. I like it because if you concentrate closely on the center, it gives you an illusion of movement
