for decades my topic was reduction. since 12.2012 i am working deconstructively with the minimum of pictorial information. there is one fact at all: the smallest pictorial information in the universe of 0+1 is 1 px. but 1 px is – in my age – almost invisible. you need to have some more and my solution was a section of 1 px width.
