P-150 (Hexagons), 1974
Plotter drawing ink on paper
22 x 22 in / 56 x 56 cm
In the Cubic Limit work series, Manfred Mohr introduced the cube into his work as a fixed system with which signs are generated. In the first part of this work phase (1972-76), an alphabet of signs is created from the twelve lines of a cube. In some works, statistics and rotation are used in the algorithm to generate signs. In others, combinatorial, logical and additive operators generate the global and local structures of the images.
In this particular of drawing, three grades of line thickness depict row after row of inter-joined cubes. The primary building block in this imagery is a hexagon.
