#000000 explores how humans use hexagons to order space, both real and virtual. Images depict an oasis in Libya that was designed in the late twentieth century using large hexagons. Game designers have also used the Al-Kufrah Oasis to model a virtual environment in an online wargame. Overlapping color spectra show the progression of this utopian oasis from its original desert form to current oil field. Hexadecimal numbers (a base-16 numbering system used to define color on web pages) are used throughout the book to illustrate the transition from real to virtual space.
