Challenge 79: Infinity . . . . . . . . . ...

Theme: Infinity
Host: Lisa Albanese
Art Concept: Perspective
Due Date:  March 30, 2013

My favorite number is infinity.  It goes on and on, without end, a concept of continuation more than the mind can grasp.  What is the largest number you can conceive?  Whatever it is, you can always go further.  And mathematically, you can take that infinite number and multiply it by any other number (including by infinity!) – and infinity is still what it is.  M.C. Escher provides a visual concept of the art of infinity with his tessellations and perspective – and still, does he actually achieve infinity?

Create a quilt that tries to show infinite possibilities, possibly using perspective to do this.  It may be realistic or abstract, or anywhere in the infinite spaces between reality and abstraction.

M.C. Escher:

Definition of Perspective:

Fractal art (With the right software, you can generate a fractal image, enlarge any part of it, and get as much detail as you saw in the original – and then do it again, and again, and again . . .):
Art quilts:
And one more note: have fun with this!
