The Aleph-Cube is an image constituting many images, the sum of which is, in fact, one single and original vision. Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It also signifies, in a system developed by Cantor, a German philosopher and mathematician, the concept of infinity, where each part of the whole is greater than the whole itself.

The Aleph-Cube is an object, an original piece which groups within itself other objects (modules).  Each module contains its very own points of reference with respect to time and space, reflected in the spatial disposition of matter, color, and texture. The modules are unique entities linked to other modules, either by a particular code ofesthetics or by the interaction they may suggest individually with respect to the whole.

The possibility of this interaction, however, is dependent on the very structure of the cube, that is to say, it relies on the facts that each module constitutes within itself a precise moment, chosen and constructed and there by self sufficient.  In addition, the idea of rhythm or the notion of time give the Aleph-Cube a certain poetic reality, in that the very grouping of the 24 modules in one single presence, one single structure, unified by a continuous circular motion enables us to experience, at any given time, a multiplicity of moments which, in fact, would be isolated from one another.  The movement which the the Aleph-Cube generates has, as a starting point, a confluence of various data (spatial disposition of matter, color, texture),whereas the end result reflects the expression of a global vision which, nevertheless, remains inseparable from its components.   DD 1986
