The Penrose Triangle

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sculpture by Blake Courter and Blake Courtney

Discovered by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose who promoted it as "impossibility in its purest form," the Penrose Triangle is a 3D illusion offering an escape from rigidity within straight lines.

It’s an aesthetic obsession found in the works of MC Escher, countless tattoos, and between the covers of the tattered notebooks—the simple doodles of teenagers aching to stay awake during 5th period.

It’s an escape from our everyday existence, challenging the ways we examine and navigate our own space, and define what is real and what may not be so real.
