Twelve K-N8s

The Algorithm

“Connections By The Rules Of Twelve” (squares/k-nights).
The series follow a recipe.
12 squares each aproxiemetly 3.5 x 3.5 cm in a raster of 3 x 4, makes 20 possible edge points to choose the 8 points of a cube. That’s 12 lines, composed as you wish. A possible blob figure or an emphasis of a square can be added, too.


Postcards do have the dimension of 10.5cm width and 14.5cm height plus maybe some millimeters more.
Postcards are a good launch for an ongoing conversation.

The rule applied is “connection over two”. The rule means that the frames are only connected by sides of a 1x2 or 2x1 grid diagonal.


I am more driven by the absurdity of live than inspiration by other artist. My idea is constructive composition with meaning(less) elements. It is not surrealism, but yet dada, so or so, or if you like it:

surrealismthe surreality as in the morphing meaning of sure reality. The vanishing, permanent illusion of taking our own private (latin for the greek word idiotic) mental spheres for granted, which is apol(l)ogetic, an exclusive concept of non aproveable (dis)belief, like in “leave me allown”. The figure is a rocket, that breaks away at the start.

Francis Bacon
