Make a diamond grid! A brick, like a loaf of bread, takes form in the hand. Like Diamond, Higgins presents a big picture of cultural change in the West by examining the gtids consequences of tools and technologies. The laying of bricks is also a handicraft, and hence this elemental architectural unit has honored basic human scale across time.

Its centrepiece is a large abstract drawing by Linda Karshan but the rest is more strictly historical, stretching back to the sixteenth century. Higgins barely acknowledges the grid as a methodology—and ideology—within the discourse of graphic design. And within the confines of that order there are all sorts of variations. The typographers affiliated to de Stijl wanted to apply these ideas in the real world, not just for their artistic cause.
Photographic work or film — self-explanatory…… I am one of the artists in HA HA you mentioned who works with grids and geometry. Painters are always moved unconsciously by the beauty of lines and colours…their mutal relationships enchant, and are of more interest than what they might represent.

Switzerland was neutral during the war. Grids feature in quite a number of exhibitions of abstract art currently on show. I use it and it uses me…. Something that the grid does which is unique is that it offers no vantage point.
