1957

The right angle, the square, the cube are the abstract vocabulary to describe space in general. I have been investigating into structures of these basic shapes and discovering their diversity by division, rotation and accumulation. The logical approach leads me to systematic variations; me and the viewer to new visual experiences and a refined spatial perception.
