2010. 8 drawings. Graphite on paper, mounted on aluminium. 40 x 28 cm each drawing.
Petrie polygon projection graphs of n-cube are executed as pencil drawings. These graphs are used in geometry for visualizing symmetric structures of the higher dimensional regular polytopes. Starting with a single line – one-dimensional cube – in each of the following drawings, one more dimension of cube is added. The addition of lines unfolds further spaces, further mathematical dimensions, but rather then revealing higher dimensions visually, this accession seems to obscure them within the flat, coded ornament.
1-cube, 2-cube, 3-cube, 4-cube, 5-cuber, 6-cube, 7-cube, 8-cube
Framed 1-cube, 2-cube, 3-cube, 4-cube, 5-cuber, 6-cube, 7-cube, 8-cube
