This short film gives an impression of the execution of a huge artwork in a crop field as a tribute to M.C. Escher. It was part of Leeuwarden Fryslân, Cultural Capital of Europe 2018. Hans Kuiper designed a transformed tessellation: two conformal transformed chessboards fused together. It was carried out by 12 people in 12 hours. The edges of the chessboard fields are hyperboles. This landscape artwork could be viewed from a higher level from a Ferris wheel.
