This Space Construction impossible figure of Harry Turner looks very perplexing. It will take a long time before the viewer can realize the illusion in the figure because of the simplicity of assembly and its logical construction. I can see the expertise of Harry in creating a mind blowing impossible figures.
About the Space Construction
This Space Construction was created by Harry Turner. His style in creating impossible figure is pragmatic. He has tried to provide the reader with graphics of deceptively tangible objects that can be controlled and handled. As a result, the completed artwork features a coherent credibility in spite of the visual incongruities that it has. He is familiar with Eschers optical illusion and this painted design is greatly influenced by Eschers graphic works. The isometric version of the impossible figure that Harry is using is closely linked to the designs based on regular triangular and hexagonal networks related to the Islamic geometric patterns.
