Three different pens combine to seemingly create a rainbow of colors from an array of straight lines.

I've created this visual using JavaScript code based on the mathematics of spirographs and guilloche. However, I then disturb and offset the results from a perfectly smooth looking curve. This oftentimes creates absolute chaos. However, with the right combination of values for the settings that define the original spirograph shape, beautiful shapes can still arise. I curate a few that look the most visually intriguing to plot with my AxiDraw V3/A3, a mechanical pen plotter.

Printed with three different colored high quality fineliners (yellow, pink, and blue) on Bristol 250gsm crisp white paper. It isn't an easy (nor sure) process to align the three different colored pens perfectly to each other. I try to get the alignment to within ~1mm of each other (otherwise I start from an empty sheet again). Thankfully though this piece doesn't depend on absolute perfect alignment.

Limited edition of 10 (and one artist proof). Signed, dated and numbered by myself.

Price does not included shipping (I ship from the Netherlands)
