In the second part of this work phase (Divisibility II, 1984-86), a molecular-like growth is created with the “four-cut” as its seed. Growth results from algorithms of graph patterns deciding which “out-lines” of the quadrants created in the preceding generation is used to produce the “four-cut” of the next generation. In a third part, the contours of the “four-cut” is seen as a “shadow-form”, a two dimensional visual history of the cube-growth. The connecting path between the center point of one “four-cut” and the center point of the next “four-cut” is shown as a black line, the growth-line. Similar to the spine in a body, the growth-line is embedded in the shadow-form.
