"All my works are based on a matrix of numbers. Each column of the matrix corresponds to a numeration in a certain base. Therefore, if 1 take a row, each number will be équivalent to ail the others in the same row, each being the same number written in a différent base.

1 1 1 1
2 2 2 10
3 3 10 11
4 10 11 101
10 11 12 110

4 (base 5) = 10 (base 4) = 11 (base 3) = 101 (base 2)

To each numerical sign, a graphic symbol is assigned.

The works that constitute my contribution to this exhibition have been made with PAL 2, a program written in Fortran by Serge Poulard of the University of Montreal according to constraints and rules which 1 deducted from my previous work which was done in the same vein, but manually.

When 1 was working by hand, it took a long time to get from the initial idea to the completed drawing. It was many hours before 1 saw the result of the work. Using the computer allows me to make new works visible in 'real-time,- (time as we live and expérience it). 1 only have to order the cards of the program in a certain fashion, add a few or withdraw a few and 1 am able, by running the deck of PAL 2, to obtain almost instantly a visible output on an efectrostatic point printer connected to the computer"
