Actual Enlargement and Reduction

  • Jürgen Weber


Up till now we have conducted our experiments exclusively with two-dimensional patterns; let us now test them on three-dimensional models. If we set up nine, evenly spaced vertical cubes (249) we recognize a three-dimensional cube comprising nine parts. However, we read it from its surfaces, which are limited at the sides and the top. It is a three-dimensional image that, despite the spaces, seems relatively flat, especially when we compare it with a composition created from nine identical cubes, densely and loosely grouped, so that in the densest parts they even interpenetrate. This group is not only more mobile and interesting, it is also more spatial.
