Impossible Figure: 2011-12-31

As the last figure was so stressed, making it during free hours on a business trip, I figured I would plan ahead for December. That failed pretty hard. I started this one the week after Christmas, and I did the finishing touches on New Year’s Eve, even. Doing this I have actually kept up making at least one per month for four years, even if the stress level at work has ramped up the last three, an exhausted mind is not optimal for creative work. I might show a graph of this later. Update: Chart!

This is basically a broken tribar twisted out of shape. If you follow the figure one way or the other you will keep going up or down as well as forwards or backwards, continuously.

    Ah, the change of color was very clever.

    Keeps you from having trouble with the shadows.

  2. I added the color change mostly because it was a bit confusing to look at when it was all in the same color, as well as a bit boring :P What trouble would there have been? :o

    Exactly that.

    I once tried that same principle in greyscale it simply took forever for people to “get” what was going on. I was going for Escher’s cube.
