Net VI Limited Edition of 12

Net VI gives the impression of a series of overlapping rectangles, a little like a Mondrian composition. At the same time, chevron, zigzag and arrow motifs appear at different scales when looked at from a distance.

Net VI is actually based on octagons and squares, and incorporates a space-filling curve I discovered in 2011, along with an interesting vase-like fractal. The fractal reminded me of ancient Chinese script, and old coins, so it seemed appropriate to make a pure octagonal shape, a very auspicious symbol in Chinese culture.
