Visual Transformations of texts and images – 1976
First shown in group show {photo left): Contrastes, Centre Culturel de Marais, Paris 1976
My contribution to the show was 4 artworks which were
printed/drawn on folding and sprocketed computer printer paper.
Two were drawings on the back of the printer paper:
– Transformation of one rotation of a cube into another, line by line
– Transformation of 2 overlaying cubes loosing lines, one by one
Two were a text transformed into another text, letter by letter:
– First line of a text by Jacques Monod into the second line of the text
– French text into its English translation

These works were later shown at Galerie Situation 2, Hamburg 1976

The drawings in this show belong to my workphase Cubic Limit I, 1973-1975 & 1976 where I use the 12 edges of the cube as an alphabet.
