Grid

In working with grids, I find inspiration in the words of the minimalist critic and theorist Rosalind Krauss.

She described centrifugal motion - a force that causes movement from the center toward the margins in different directions and leaves behind a distributed product. The opposite movement to the centrifugal is called a centripetal movement, an inward movement towards the core, which seems to draw from all directions to the center.

She pointed out, for example, the ambiguity in importing the grid shape into the ritual space of art.

“The mythical power of the grid lies in the fact that it makes us think we are discussing materiality.

According to Krauss, the power of the grid-myth to homogenize by its ability to bridge the contrast between the individual and the totality, between the chaotic and the regulated, between the natural and the industrial, and at the same time emphasize it.
