Acevedo's graphite drawing, Void Matrix
was done for the April 1983 issue of Movement newspaper. The previous
issue had featured R. Buckminster Fuller on the cover and in the
feature story. Void Matrix was to be an illustration for an article
about Carl Pribram's holographic brain theory. It combined an IVM
spatial sub-division of its implicate three-point perspective while
referencing Escher's perspectival pun in his print called Relativity.
Incidentally, Relativity is one of the first Escher pictures Acevedo
saw. In 1966, it was published in the Time-Life book called Light
Acevedo: In general, Void Matrix
can be best described as an inventory of implications - yet it's
simply a picture of a child having an out of body experience. An
oblivious parent, holding the hand of a child who sees an apparition
of self and daddy in extra-corporeal suspension. On the chair his
older brother sees it as well.
This is happening in a context of a tetra-vertexia-gestalt
of space-frame parallels. That is, a convergent-divergent vectorial
matrix manifesting pockets of equilibrium resonance. It is a way
to show that Renaissance perspective is in fact a tetra-system.
