Pre-cursors of Cubic Limit - Lines of Squares and Triangles used as an Alphabet and other pre-cursors 1970 - 1973

Lines of Squares and Triangles as an Alphabet

 P-128, Sphereless 1972 P-105, Squares 1972 P-147, Triangles 1973 The 4 lines of a square + the 2 diagonals are used as an alphabet The 4 lines of a square are used as an alphabet The 3 lines of a triangle are used as an alphabet P-128 is published in the catalog: "Manfred Mohr, Drawings Dessins Zeichnungen Dibujos", Galerie Weiller, Paris and Galerie Gilles Gheerbrant, Montreal, 1974
Other pre-cursor drawings related to Cubic Limit I

 P-26, Inversion Logique, 1970 Adding and subtracting lines to create a structure. In Cubic Limit I many of the algorithms add and subtract lines of a fixed structure, the cube.
 P-80, Cube Drawing, 1971 P-80 test, Cube Drawing, 1971 Early cube drawings. Random points along 4 sides of a cube are linearly transformed to their respective base straight lines.

P-26 is published in the catalog: "Manfred Mohr, Computer Graphics, Une esthétique programée", ARC - Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris, 1971
P-80 test is published in the catalog: "Buchleiter/Mohr/Murle/Treiber", Kunstverein Pforzheim 1972

Early works from Cubic Limit I, 1973

P-154, 1973
The 12 edges of the cube are used as an alphabet. The two drawings have a complimentary number of lines for each cube. This is a study for the experimental computer generated films "Cubic Limit" and "Complimentary Cubes".

P-154 is published in the catalog: "Manfred Mohr, "Cubic Limit", Galerie Weiller, Paris, 1975"

 "Cubic Limit" and "Complemetaty Cubes" are 2 computer generated algorithmic films, 1973 - 1974 Some images from film "Cubic Limit" showing lines n at a time, 1973-1974. Some sequences of this film were created in 1973. Some images from film "Complimentary Cubes" showing 2 cubes, one with n lines, the other its complimentary cube with 12 - n lines, 1973-1974. Some sequences of this film were created in 1973. Images from these films are published in the catalog: "Manfred Mohr, "Cubic Limit", Galerie Weiller, Paris, 1975" Experimenting with computer generated films
