signed and dated in graphite lower right “Works from Mohr’s Line Cluster phase (1989-1990) are based on the 5-dimensional hyper-cube, a structure built from a set of eighty lines. A subset of twenty lines, containing four lines from each “dimensional-direction” are chosen from this structure. Each “dimensional-direction” consists therefore of four parallel lines, represented by […]
signed, titled, and dated on the reverse in graphite image conceived: 1970 drawing on canvas: 1990 “Mohr’s work is an important bridge between handmade manipulations and machine-calculated structures in art. Following a series of geometric experiments, a shift toward hard-edge painting by 1967 immediately preceded Mohr’s use of the computer as a tool for art. […]
“The P-2400 series is based on the 1978 algorithm from the work phase Dimensions I. The first version of this alogrithm did not include the possibility of rotating the four-dimensional hypercube. In 2017, Mohr pursued this original code and directed the algorithm into a different visual solution. Again, the basic 32 lines which constitute the […]
