P-495-2, 1994-1995
Plotter drawing on paper
17 x 31.3 in / 43 x 79.5 cm

P-495-2 (1994-1995) is from Mohr’s Counterpoint phase (1993-1995). In this phase, two diagonal-paths through the 6D hypercube are chosen with the same method as in Mohr’s Laserglyphs phase (1990-1993). Each work consists of one thin black line and one thick grey line drawn on canvas. The line width is inversely proportional to the decrease in color intensity from black to grey. To visually maintain the inherent connectivity, only lines which have at least one point in common within the structure can be chosen. Both lines have a visual relationship comparable to the counterpoint of a succession of sounds in music. For each work, the picture format is a result of the size and location of the two diagonal-paths in relationship to one another.
