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 second part of this work phase (1976-78), cubes are divided into two parts by one of the Cartesian planes. For each image the two partitions contain independent rotations of a cube. They are projected into two dimensions and clipped by a square window (the projection of a cube at 0,0,0 degrees). By rotating both parts of these cubes in small but different increments, long sequences of images are developed.
