Hexagonal structures applied in the artwork
of Jens W. Beyrich allow the application
of any triple of colours and the attribution
of different shapes for the segments.
This change in concept was first done
on the basis of a single panel showing a
field of “stars” decomposed in lozenges,
small and large dots. Again, all sixty
elements present the set of individually
differentiable arrangements, qualifying by
their positioning for an unprecedented rule
of symmetry: while lozenges are oriented
symmetrical to the centre of the panel and
large and small dots invert, the application
of hyper-symmetry can be put further by
using a second panel with inverted colours.
The reciprocity among the panels allow
any positioning - horizontal or vertical, or
Visitors have associated the artwork with secret scripts, such as the Da Vinci Code, trying to decipher the enigmatic symbols. They were intrigued to find figurative elements and wondered about the ample set of rules of symmetries.
