A Group Theory Approach to (re)Constructing Sol LeWitt's Drawing Series IV, \#413
(Proceedings pages 563–566)
The authors were inspired by Drawing Series IV, #413, to puzzle
over what Sol LeWitt had in mind when he designed this wall drawing.
The result is this paper, which describes a mathematical process
involving group actions on a set by which LeWitt might have designed
the piece. We also describe choice points in the process that are
not mathematically determined and that produce interesting variations
on a theme. The seed is one four-color square; the result is a
beautiful and complex work of art.
