Continuing with the theme of systems..
Serial Project 1 (ABCD), Sol Lewitt, 1966
“LeWitt’s three-dimensional grid sculptures, in contrast, are self-referential, rooted in logic and reality, and governed by mathematical instructions that objectively organize space.”
-from The Pace Gallery’s press release for Jensen/Sol LeWitt: Systems and Transformation, an exhibition that ran from January 13 till February 11, 2012. I have recently began exploring the relationship between cities and the growing necessity and urgency of environmentalism and sustainability, and it is integral to view the city as a system (or as a “system of systems,” an apt expression articulated in the article that lead to the discovery of the quote in my previous post). I am interested in the potential relationship between the ideas and visual explorations of LeWitt’s grids and the ever-changing, certainly more spontaneous but no-less planned or logical grids of the (American, global?) city.
