Plotter drawing ink on paper

The emergence of three-dimensional volume – specifically, moving from a square to a cube – is the focus of this picture. In this drawing, six iterations are made from start to finish using 24 lines each. The starting point depicts a flat 12×12 grid. The ending point is a three-dimensional image of two interlocking cubes. To this end, the rotation of each line in the four middle steps is calculated using an algorithm authored by Manfred Mohr in FORTRAN. The piece was drawn to paper using a Benson plotter.
