This work phase
(1991-92) is based on the 6-dimensional hyper-cube. This
geometrically defined structure has 32 diagonals. The two endpoints
of each diagonal lie diametrically opposite in the structure. A
"diagonal-path" is the connection of two such diametric points
through the network of edges of this complex structure. In a 6-D
hyper-cube, each of these 32 diagonals have 720 different
For each "Laserglyph" a random selection of four "diagonal-paths" from this repertoire of 23040 (32x720) possible paths is made. The 2-D dimensional projection of such groups of four are cut out of a metal plate by a laser to form a relief.
Each of the above drawings show the 720 diagonal-paths between between 2 diagonally opposite points in the 6-D structure.
