The CMYK color process has been used for over one hundred years to print color images using four different colored inks: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. Printing these colors in overlapping patterns of varying sized dots results in a large range of possible colors. In this image, four colored blocks are seen converging on each other, making this mixing explicit. The title of this work reveals this technical code, each colored block is related to an arrow, or the direction that it is moving to make this mix.
