P-142, "negative field syntax", plotter drawing ink on paper, 50cm x 50cm, 1973

About the algorithm:
Lines with acute angles represent the numbers 0-9. Lines with obtuse angles
represent the letters of the alphabet A-Z.
When a letter ajoins a number a horizontal thick line is added between them.
The space between the line thus formed
and a lower base horizontal line is filled in with parallel vertical lines.
In P142 letters and numbers are chosen randomly, thus creating a random text.
