Preceding the 2004 project "individual structures/according to dates" there were other serial drawings based on the three basic colours. Herein two interlocking structures visualise a particular date each. Cyan, magenta and yellow correspond to the day, the month and the year respectively, the repetition structure of the lines result from the numerical values of the data. Since 2007, these translations of the dates of birth and death have been combined with images of the portrayed persons.
