Simply Complex

2003 - 2004







This work is to test the complexity produced by the growth of a simple unit of cube according to the simple principle of multiplication.
Eleven cubes make up the first phase. Three first phases constitute the second phase.
The next phase is made from tripling the previous phase.
Each phase consists of a paper model, a plane figure, and a cement work that is made
by filling the inside of an extended model with cement.
The work is finished at the fifth phase.

Question: At what phase will the visible complexity emerge from multiplying a cube, the simplest form,
according to a simple principle?

Conclusion: Unexpectedly, complexity emerges only at the fifth phase. Likewise,
a very simple principle may be hidden in the outward complexity we experience in the system.
