  • This workphase extends the last workphase Divisibility I 1980, by using the original 4-cut as a generator of an organic-like growth. The out-lines of the last generation of the structure are used to generate the next generation of the structure (with no overlapping parts). Thus a graph-like multi-piece graphic object is formed.
  • This workphase was developed 1981-1984.
  • These objects were first realized on paper and canvas with the out-lines and in-lines drawn. They were eventually realized as shaped canvas and wooden reliefs (as in Divisibility I, 1980), as multi-piece growths with the out-lines as the shape of each part and the in-lines drawn on the canvas of each part.
