Artists' Fellowship - 1997
Since 1969, the computer has been an extension in the process of creating my art. During most of these years, I've been interested in the semiotic aspect resulting from fracturing the symmetry of a cube (and hybercube). This disturbance of symmetry became the basic generator of new constructions and relationships. I write computer algorithms, I.e. rules that calculate and then generate the work, which could not be realized in other ways. It is not the system or the logic I want to present in my work, but the visual invention that results. My new work is based on the 6-D hypercube and its semiotic aspects. Calculating all 720 x 32 = 23,040 diagonal paths through this structure resulted in an amazing alphabet of signs.
