Void Matrix
Size: 12 x 12"
Medium: graphite on paper
Date created: Spring 1983

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 and Vision.

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.
