DIY Droste/Escher Effect Tutorial

DIY Droste

Now here is a cool photo that you can do but would not be able to actually take in real life, unless your pretty flexible. It is called a Droste effect:

a Dutch term for a specific kind of recursive picture[1], one that in heraldry is termed mise en abyme.

Now you are probably wondering what is mise en abyme?

The term is originally from the French and means, “placing into infinity” or “placing into the abyss”. The commonplace usage of the phrase is to describe the visual experience of standing between two mirrors, seeing an infinite proliferation of one’s image.

There you go. Now bust out the Photoshop and get to work with this tutorial.

Gödel, Escher, Bach, MaoChan
