Voorstel (aangenomen)
o

Aan Mrs Dooley. Proposal for Windows on Broadway. New York, 1990.
o

Given: Two series
o

1) The series circle, square, triangle, rectangle, trapezium and parallellogram.

2) The series black, white, blue, orange, green and red.
o

The second series has been imagined and modeled after traffic events and signals:

black, white (accident, shock), blue rotating light (rescue),

yellow rotating light (clear the way), green light (go), red light (stop).
o

The two series are different but also similar.
o

Both series are made out of oppositional pairs:
o

the shapes: circle/square, triangle/rectangle, trapezium/parallelogram

the colors: black/white, blue/orange, green/red.
o

Both series are primitives:
o

The first series consist of the most basic geometrical forms

and the second series (colored signals) of the most elementary symbols.
o

Both series are ideal (but come from the real world).

Both series are finite (therefore reversible).

Both series are progressive (unfold in a straight line).
o

The intersection of these two series gives a new series of figures

in which the two series merge into one.
