Vor ein paar Wochen bloggte ich über eine Real Life-Version von MC Eschers Wasserfall, jetzt hat jemand eine detailierte Anleitung auf Instructables zum Nachbau des Teils gepostet.

A dimensional geometry merged from 3 hexahedrons is placed on the top of the Left Tower. And on the top of the Right Tower placed another dimensional geometry merged from 3 octahedrons. And we call the part under the waterwheel the Pooland from the Pool there is the "1st flume", the "2nd flume" and so on. Water falls from the Platform in the upper part of the Left tower.

As the aim of this project is to re-establish the marvelous scene of Waterfall from plane to 3D and present us a vivid show, it is important that: first, how to realize the impossible architecture structure; second, how to realize the water circulation within flume-waterfall circle.
There are many different ways to approach the aim and here is just one of them. You may keep on your own probing and come up with some cool ideas~

And before the project starts, you have to convince yourself that:
1. Perpetual motion is impossible;
2. Perpetual motion is impossible;
3. Perpetual motion is impossible;

Well....and still you have to accept that:
1. Water always flows to a lower place;
2. Seeing is not always believing.
