One RCH off

This is the piece I did in Pudel here in Hamburg. It is a total of 370 A4 pieces of paper. There are 11 individual drawings. Each one has several iterations making a total of 99 individual pieces that fit together like a puzzle. The piece itself is based on binary numbers and can be scaled to fit any size space.
I drew the whole thing by hand and made copies of the various stages along the way in order to make it appear as though the little parts are taking over the entire piece.
I have done similar pieces in the past, but none this involved and none where I was looking to the future like I did with this one.
As far as this piece is concerned, I think it was a mild success and a very good learning experience for the next time I install some version of it.
This is an example of one of the pieces as it grows.

Here are some installation and final pictures. Its unfortunately too hard to get a good full installation picture of this. So these will have to do...

Many many many thanks to Julia, Nane and the Die Reliktion crew. Also thanks a lot to the TDSVW crew from Stuttgart for making the opening party a real blast. Good times.
