Director Cristobal Vila of Etérea Studios has created Inspirations, a nifty cinematic short that offers a fictionalized interpretation of M.C. Escher's desk and the various objects that informed his mathematical art. Explains Vila of this piece:

[I] tried to imagine how it could be his workplace, what things would surround an artist like him, so deeply interested in science in general and mathematics in particular. This, though, from a completely imaginary, free and invented point of view.

You can find a list of annotations at Etérea Studios. Groovy stuff all around.
