FLEX

“(Al) Munro is interested in the notion that the grid, which we think of as ‘static’, presents an opportunity for freedom, as she shared, ‘a textile grid may allow for a movement ‘through’ its gridded form as well as for a capturing within the grid – a fishing net allows for water and small fish to pass through its mesh as much as it catches larger fish within.’ Grids are considered in this more inclusive way by historian Hannah Higgins, who asserts that grids should not be seen purely as systems of parallel lines, constraint and control. Rather she contends that grids should be seen as sites of intersection, ‘of making and unmaking, connecting to other grids and disconnecting from them.‘”
