13 plotter ink drawings on CDC printing paper
11 x 16.1 in / 28 x 41 cm, each
Installation: 130 x 19 in / 330 x 48 cm
In this particular drawing there are twelve steps taken that translate one sign into another. At the top is a cube drawn with thin lines. Gradually and step by step, this sign intersects with a second rotated cube which is drawn with thick lines – until its final transformation at the bottom. To this end, each middle step was calculated by a computer using an algorithm written in FORTRAN by Manfred Mohr.
The ink drawing in this work was computer-controlled using a Benson plotter- although the paper on which it was made is sprocketed along the sides (and therefore unconventional for use with a Benson plotter).
