Worm by Andreas Aronsson

Take a look at this twisted figure that its creator Andreas Aronsson calls an impossible worm.  If you study the multi-colored shape in detail, you will notice that it is really just five interconnected impossible triangles.  On his blog, Andreas notes: I’m not sure why I like this one so much, it’s kind of simple […]
