4.0 CLOCKS AND BAR CHARTS

Clocks are used here not for time but to mark out the progression of digits in number series and to help reveal the patterns thus formed [including those series generated by natural phenomena]. The use of clocks [particularly 9, 12 and 24 hour clocks] to explore series as events proved to be very rewarding - see games with Prime Numbers 4.1 and the Fibonacci and Albarn Series 4.2.Bar Charts are made from some of the series and manipulated by rotation to reveal patterns of behaviour and something of the resulting character of the digits thus amplifying the nature of their relationship and the forms and concepts they tend to represent.

4.3 Bar Charts [an introduction]Manipulation of colour coded bar charts of series etc. produces diagrams which are later used to generate images and sounds

4.3.1 Series including the Fibonacci and Albarn Series and their parts are then translated into bar charts in which each bar is rotated Firstly, by 90degs; Secondly, placed in order to form a spiral [90degs] which either folds into itself [full series] or if the 9s are omitted, creates a spiralling linear pattern; Thirdly, to form spirals with each successive bar rotated at another angle e.g. 60degs [see later sections]

4.3.2 A stage one bar chart and rotation using the Tetrahedral Series [after Buckminster Fuller]

4.3.3 A stage two bar chart and rotation using the Tetrahedral Series [after Buckminster Fuller]

4.3.6 The M [multiplication] Series minus 3, 6 and 9 is tested with spiral rotation

4.3.7 Series derived from Nuclear Sphere packing is also explored

4.3.8 A set of spiral rotations placed on the nine colours used to code the digits 1 - 9
