Minimal Art Objects Based on the principle of the SUDOKU puzzle.

Why 3D SUDOKU puzzles? Because I added an extra dimension. I replaced the 81 squares of the SODOKU puzzle by 81 cubes. The numbers in the squares of a solved SUDOKU puzzle mean the vertical layer in which the cubes are placed. The result is a digital object. But can this object exist in real? Are all cubes connected? This is only possible if every cube (with a level>1) has a connection, some how, with level 1. I have never seen a 9x9 SUDOKU puzzle with that conditions. But in a 8x8 SUDOKU puzzle it is rather easy to find solutions with this condition.With beautiful symmetries. I wrote an article about my art in Arthesis in july 2002 (in Dutch) . I wrote short paper (page 475-476 of the proceedings) and gave a presentation of it on the Bridges Conference in Leeuwarden in july 2009. |
