„Proportions – design paraphrases on the subject of Pythagorean Geometry“, 1981

A booklet that analyzes how visual objects are created by using geometrical devices on the basis of laws of proportionality. This analysis is based on a piece of work which dealt with the value of classical axioms where graphic designs are concerned. The various geometrical proofs of Pythagoras’ theorem were investigated with the aim of subsequently visualizing the results. It was further intended to use the possibilities of pictorial creativity to portray the interrelationships of an aesthetic production that has a wide field of application.
A portfolio of 21 aquatint etchings with designs of some of those geometrical proofs was produced as an additional feature.
