In "Divisibility", the
cube is used again as a fixed structure to generate signs. The cube
is divided into four sections by a horizontal and a vertical cut.
Four independent rotations of a cube are projected onto the
corresponding quadrants created by the cut. In order to visually
stabilize the structure, two diagonally opposed quadrants (top
right and bottom left), contain the same rotation. In the first
part of this work phase (1980-84), the "four-cut" is the
basic structure with which the "out-lines" form shapes and the
"in-lines" form signs.
