langrids by differx (2014 – up to now)

I often drawrite “langrids”. A langrid is a grid of language.

I always had in mind Robert Smithson’s A heap of language (1966), or Paul Celan’s Sprachgitter (1959).

In my work, grids and squares and weird geometric shapes collide with pieces of superimposed sentences, asemic bits, other shapes, syllables.

I thought I invented the term “langrid” in 2014, but I now know Jim Andrews used the word too: take a look here and also click the “About” button. It’s an amazing synchronicity I really appreciate.
