Lot Essay

'Fundamentele begrippen als boven en onder, binnen en buiten, rechts en links, dichtbij en veraf, blijken relatief te zijn, naar believen inwisselbaar. Geheel nieuwe verbanden, tussen punten, vlakken en ruimten, tussen oorzaak en gevolg vormen hier ruimtestructuren die vreemde en toch volmaakt mogelijke werelden oproepen' – M.C. Escher
