Jos de Mey impossible mathematical figures in the EXPLORA Science Center Frankfurt


Jos de Mey’s pictures always quote from his surroundings and pictures from other artists. He uses the stylistic device of the impossible mathematical figure to give the brain something to play with. Can you find the owl in all of his pictures? Peter Breughel’s peasant dance and an “Escher” figure with an owl and Magritte clouds.
