Tetra Module Schema functions similarly to the way a building plan describes a building and the way a logo stands in for a brand. As a schema it is the design for the colours to be used on the construction Tetra Module Maquette. It was co-opted as artwork for exhibition invitations and handouts, which changed it from a preliminary design to a kind of illustration. With the colour scheme available on the handout, I decided to leave the actual maquette unpainted, in a way restoring the design function. This meant that both represented separate aspects of a third as yet unrealized thing, Tetra Module.
The triangular motif in the module complements the three-colour system of the human eye – the red, green and blue colour receptors, which occur when the primaries yellow, cyan and magenta are overlaid.
