The Motives are visualisations for arranging and filling space in relation to the experience of counting and order.

The specific space is worked by using the basic navigation strategies, e.g., left/right, up/down, corner/center and double/half. The works are created line by line, as carefully as possible, with each line representing its own exposure on film. The number of lines are dependant on how each system of lines fills the space.

The Motives are also a kind of codex for the more complex Symmetrium works.
