What do you call stacked "Escher" cubes?

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to find out what these little cubes are called, there's also another variation of them. Thomas Hooper tends to use them quite a bit if I'm correct

Thanks

Here's a picture of Tron using them (the variation of them):

& here's the cube stacking from google images:

M.C. Escher did a ton of work using variants of cubes and other mathematical figures...necker cubes and penrose triangles, tessellations, or "tiled" cubes such as the pic you posted. He also used polyhedra and distorted geometric figures. Not my cup of meat, but hey, to a mathematician, I guess they're pretty hot!

Your description is pretty accurate. Just stick to that.

Giving them some internet-forum-style 'neo-tribalism-escher-hooper-xed-jondix-geometric-graphic-PatternDotWork-repetition' type title makes everyone look like a douche.

If you insist on getting more descriptive, throw in, or google "OpArt" just so we aren't making up dumb titles for things that already have a perfectly good title outside of tattooing.
