"Arrangement (2)"

Digital print, 5" x 7", 2009 .

This arrangement was inspired by the following result from the theory of binary space partitions in computational geometry which you may not know about, so contact to understand the basic concept and proceed to the analysis of the art. There exists a set S of n disjoint axis-parallel line segments with the property that any axis-parallel binary space partition of S has size at least 2n-O(n2/3). The construction is based on a shifted double grid made of disjoint segments.
