Point of View is one of my series of waterglobes that are an obvious nod to Escher’s drawings. I have been intrigued by his drawings, which feature impossible angles and people walking on stairways at different planes. While Escher’s imaginary world is not possible due to gravity, in my sculptures, I realized that gravity is not the law.

By turning “Point of View” from side to side and upside-down, one can see the various viewpoints of the tiny figures walking on the stairs.
