grid bloc (four folds, 2016)
This work builds upon Haegue Yang's original Grid Bloc (2000), an earlier study showing Yang's interest in ways to resist industrial standardizations. Through her frequent use of millimeter paper for her artistic practice, Yang discovered that certain color or dimensional schemes are not included in regular graph paper production for the general stationary market. Grid Bloc contains different grid line intervals in various colors. With these new grids Yang inserts 'unindustrialized' norms into the market.
