Carnegie Art Museum Visit

On my recent trip to the Carnegie Art Museum in Pittsburgh I came across this work or art by Mel Bochner.  The opportunity to connect mathematics and art are often missed and this presents a wonderful problem.

While there are many ways to use this in the classroom but I would simply present the work to small groups and ask them to interpret it and then create their own work of art.  They could also trade diagrams and allow other groups to create their work.

Are there other ways to make a diagram of a block structure?
