A single line of 91 meters long is drawn on the page, only consisting of straight lines, creating seemingly curved shapes.

I've created this visual using JavaScript code based on the mathematics of spirographs. I'm using carefully chosen intervals to set using a random seed, which creates a unique result on each reload of the code. I curate a few that look the most visually intriguing to plot with my AxiDraw V3/A3, a mechanical pen plotter. This particular result is a possible outcome from using the original spirograph approach (a smaller circle rotating within a larger circle). However, I'm only "sampling" the resulting mathematical formula using very large intervals, and draw straight lines between each interval. This can create completely unexpected results where the overlap of the straight lines create beautiful shapes.

Printed with a high quality white gel pen on A4 Fabriano Black Black 300gsm paper.

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