Concept and Inspiration
Artwork inspired by the dominance of number four. There are four fundamental forces (electromagnetism, gravitation, the weak nuclear force, and the strong nuclear force) which are responsible for everything existing in the universe. We live in the universe of 4th dimension.
Four is the only number that has the same number of characters as its value in the English language. A number is a multiple of 4 if its last two digits are a multiple of 4. For example, 1092 is a multiple of 4 because 92 = 4 × 23.
