Diary of the Grid

— November 2, 2022

I imagine a machine that can paint 43,164 corners, right angles. 10,791 squares 16 mm across — interior dimensions. The squares are separated by a dark, negative-space, which is grid of perpendicular lines 0.795 mm in width rendered in dark violet.

The paint machine would have a lot of tubes.

Perhaps there are two machines, one is a preliminary tape machine that is taping the grid over a dark violet canvas. I imagine this would be the easy part.

I am deciding whether I should paint these 16 mm squares more like typewriter keys with more rounded corners.

Painting into the vertex, and not outside of it, requires a lot of focus and determination.

Diary of the Grid

— September 21, 2022

Pre-historic cave painters could have easily left a record of painting the grid: Saturating ten fingertips with some dry pigment and with two hands draw a set of ten vertical lines, equally spaced, and following that up with ten horizontal lines would have accomplished this task. Some time between then, if that ever happened, and maybe 5,000 - 10,000 years ago, the grid was discovered.
