Crónica 039L~2009, 40 x 40 cm archival inkjet print, series of 10 signed and numbered copies

Release date: 1 February 2009


Conical is an investigation of a 3D form composed of lines that trace out segments of multiple cones. Seen at a distance, the form becomes a spatial volume. Zooming in, the sense of volume disappears and the form becomes a 2D surface. The image resolves into a complex pattern of optical interference, without any depth cues to indicate its 3D nature.


Conical is part of the Limited Release series from Crónica and is the cover art for Morten Riis’s Digital Sound Drawings. Each of the 10 signed and numbered copies is signed and certified by Marius Watz.
