Abstract
Dieses "unmögliche Objekt" wurde von Penrose und Penrose 1958 als Zeichnung vorgestellt. Einer Anregung der Autoren folgend, schuf Gregory 1970 ein räumliches Modell, das - einäugig mit festgegelegtem Augpunkt betrachtet - dem unmöglichen Dreieck zu einer trügerischen Wirklichkeit verhilft.
This "impossible triangle" was introduced as a drawing by Penrose and Penrose in 1958. Following a suggestion of the authors Gregory created a space model which - monocularly watched with a defined visual point - lends the impossible triangle an illusionary reality.
