A Short History Of The Grid In Popular Culture II

1. Man Ray Venus Restauré, 1936
2. Nobuyoshi Araki Bondage, 1994
3. Hassan Khan Blind Ambition, 2012

Following my thoughts on The Grid, the fetish for roped restriction presents another example of domesticated nature. What seems repressed by rational, mathematical systems reflects, as such, liberation.

P.S.: The fragility of repression is beautifully typified by a glass sculpture encountered today at dOCUMENTA (13).
