'Subsets' is a **work phase **
based on the 11-d hyper-cube. The algorithm
I wrote selects a subset of cubes from a repertoire of 42240 cubes
inherent to the 11-d hyper-cube and decides which sides
shall be black or white. Clipped by a defined window, this
structure rotates in front of a green background. Since the
above mentioned subset is by definition incomplete, the
green background occasionally becomes visible, as the
structure is rotating in 11-dimensions. Based on these
algorithms and without losing the geometric and systematic
content of my work, I approach through logic a seemingly
chaotic visual system, which I refer to as visual music.
It is symbolic of action painting and free jazz, the
things which were very important to me as a young artist
in the early 60's.
