description from direct communication with the artist:
“Each version in this series consists of 2000 original variations without repeats. Some of the series anticipating Y2K date from 1999 while others were completed in the year 2000. Versions exist in several varied dark toned inks and in several sizes. This is one of the first Y2K series.
This version employs the same algorithmic procedures Roman used for his “scarab” pieces. He did exhibit one of his Scarab pieces in the 1997 SIGGRAPH. Several Y2K examples from this 1999 series were shown at Ars (Dis)Symmetyrica ’99 (Ernst Museum, Budapest) for the interest of the annual symmetry symposium.”
