- The lines are black; the background is white
- The line midpoints seem to be fixed on a grid (45×45 line midpoints) with spacing between each row half a line away
- The lines’ angles are pretty regular (perhaps a gaussian distribution)
- The interruptions in her piece are splotchy, but concentrated: not randomly selected in a simple way.
- The splotches are centered heavily in some areas, making me suspect that they are generated via epicenters of some sort.
- The lines intersect each very close to the endpoints, or not at all
- The lines are not cut off at the edge; they remain the same length
- The lines have a natural chevron pattern overlaid on vertical lines
- The interruptions don’t touch much of the edge; much more focuses on the center
- There aren’t very many vertical lines near the interruptions
Initially I had thought this to be a set of randomized lines. However, when I had coded this, I realised that it was more regular and had much more structure than the hairy mess I had coded. Going back to the drawing board, I had to redraw these lines in a grid. Also, the interruptions stumped me for a long while. They didn’t seem to have any rhyme or reason, so I tried randomly omitting some lines. That didn’t work as well as I had thought, so I had to go through much trial and error for a decent facsimile of her pattern, centered around empty spots. I admit now that such a piece is so much more than meets the eye. The technical abilities she harbored and the fact that she probably had no premade algorithms to rip off makes her truly a pioneer of intersectionality.
