Multinagation (irreflexive) 1 - 6


media/size: unique inkjet print on paper/ #2 & #6: 78 x 78 cm (printed range) each; #1, #1.1, #3, & #5: 90 x 90 cm (printed range) each
The following two are #2 and #6.


“Multinagation (irreflexive)” series mainly consists of the following 2 step processes:

A. Negation of my own aesthetics: generating strict compositions consist of random numbers only, by reference to some brief scores which I have defined, to decide the figures and the colors and also to keep them just geometric; this means there are no elements which come from my personal aesthetics.
B. Negation of the composed figures: the precise outlines and colors from the compositions are spoiled by printing which features unique bleeding and blur.

Those double negations don't have recursive function of itself. Normally, ‘!(!A)=A’ means recursiveness of the proposition A, but the above steps don't have their recursiveness, that means the negations ' irreflexive (= non-recursive) function.

This idea has been inherited by the new series of work “Self-denial Practice (ideal)” as more minimal abstraction; it will be started to realize from 2016.
