Peggy Reynolds, A Talk About Grids
The Genealogy of the Grid Artist/scholar Peggy Reynolds, Ph.D presents a talk on The Genealogy of the Grid in the context of the Checkered History exhibition on view at Outpost. Doors open 1pm for coffee and pastries. Talk in gallery October 18th, 2pm. Free. Cognitive science, ontology, metaphysics, topology, digital media, ethics, and fair housing are all passions of this remarkable and thoughtful person. Hear her talk about the Checkered show and more, but we haven't got a date yet. Stayed tuned. In the meantime, she wrote this: The grid, a long-lived human construct, has initiated some of the greatest changes the species has undergone since first it wove a fabric or tilled a field. This orthogonal arrangement of thread or lines on earth, plan, map, canvas or in abstract space has, with each iteration, proven instrumental in helping humans (re)orient themselves in a world it has helped them to (re)configure.
