Manfred Mohr, about this specific work series:

The work phase space.color is based on the 6-dimensional hypercube. This geometrically defined structure has 32 diagonals. The two endpoints of each diagonal lie diametrically opposite in the structure. A “diagonal-path” is the connection of two such diametric points through the network of edges of this complex structure. In a 6-dimensional hypercube, each of these 32 diagonals have 720 different “diagonal-paths”. For each work a random selection of four “diagonal-paths” from this repertoire of 23040 (32×720) possible paths is made and shown in its 2-D projection. A 6-dimensional “diagonal-path” is built therefore from six consecutive connected vectors, each having a different but distinct direction. Each direction represents one of the six mathematical dimensions.
