Manfred Mohr (b. 1938, Germany) began his artistic career as a jazz musician and an action painter, but in the 1960s his interest turned to geometricism and the use of signs and systems in art. Mohr began working with the cube in the early 1970s to systematically explore the representation of multi-dimensional space in two-dimensional form. It has been the sole focus of his work for over thirty years.

This lithographic print was made after a plotter drawing produced using a bespoke computer program written by Mohr. A plotter is a mechanical device that holds a pen or brush and is linked to a computer that controls its movements.
