This is a multi-dimensional work that confronts the viewer head-on with what looks to be graphical unfolding into the process of investigative mathematics…that it is. In the process…within the process of every investigation…is the inherent prejudice of the investigator (Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle). Simultaneously the prejudice of the prime numbers and the prejudice of the investigators is revealed. Carry on!
The actual white papers which support the mathematics in this work are referenced linked at the bottom and are intimately part of…although a challenging dimensional pursuit for some…of the total new media experience!
