I am not going to even acknowledge building this in minecraft... no.

First to post.

I've seen a massive version. But they sorta made it in a server builder, kinda like the massive 1/1 scale enterprise I have seen. So I don't think it should count.

I cannot find it on UTube.
As for how, you would have to tilt the stairs in reverse to create the illusion.

Warning, my spelling is very bad and I like puns.

I wonder if the whole point of the joke is that you can only create an Escher Staircase when using a 2D medium to simulate 3D. In a true 3D medium, it breaks too many laws of physics (or rendering, in the virtual world).

Pip, of course, is a gamer geek and comic book nerd, not an artist, like Art. He doesn't know this limitation and is likely to drive himself insane trying to build the impossible. Art, meanwhile, should be building a high wall between their halves of the server because a frustrated madman is never a good neighbour.

How? By recreating the image in 2D.
Perhaps flatten the earth and make the image in trees or stone walls.

How? Probably by building the staircase in sections that, when viewed from the correct position, appear to all be one construction that has the desired effect. Kinda like this:

I suppose he could do the art of it as in made by a 1xwhateverxwhatever stack o cubes. But frankly simply make a 3-d version with upside down staircases with

Upside down staircase. tada. Hibiki broke physics! Catgirls will suffer! Oh Noes!

It'll probably be some sort of cubeminer hack that allows stairs to be put in any way more than likely. because modding minecraft is just about as easy as modding garry's mod
