Collection: Moebius Strip

In 1961, Escher created a xylography depicting nine ants walking on an endless ribbon. At first glance, the ants appear to walk on two distinct sides, but in reality each ant walks along both sides of the ribbon at the same time.

The track designed by Escher is a famous mathematical object, known as the Moebius Strip.

Like an ant walking on a Moebius strip, consciousness and experience also rest on the reverse side. The unconscious, always waiting to be crossed by experience, is like an ant that walks endlessly, always chasing its own shadow.

The Moebius strip is a metaphor for change, the unusual, iteration and renewal. What is inside is outside, what is below is also above.
