P-52, "quark lines", plotter drawing ink on paper, 50cm x 50cm, 1970

About the algorithm:
A set of random points above a horizontal line are connected and then in defined steps linearly transformed to their positions on a horizontal line. This is repeated in the reverse manner to form each of the eight bands.

Drawings from this algorithm are related to my 1969 computer generated random number collages, wrt to the reflection around the horizontal zero line and varying random heights of the points.
