GRIDS

2011-2014

An educational experience can be angled towards a single politic or any politic. The performance of education is a political enactment. In Grids a matrix of knowledge becomes a system or score for a pedagogical enactment. By squaring the canvas (a renaissance­grounded gesture of measuring space) I create a space for practice, for mediation, for critical comparison of ideas and methods, and development of new ideas. A grid develops expectations because slowly one expects the next line and square. But just as a grid can represent structure it can also portray breakage. The grid falls apart, or unravels itself each time it is reproduced and so structure and pedagogy follow.
