Grids at a glance

Grids. Series of lines that bring some kind of organization to a medium.

They’re not all perfectly horizontal or vertical boxes, squares or parallelograms.

But they’re everywhere when you look.

Some are tilted, set on some angle for a better aesthetic or for strength.

Some grids are there for numbers or words to be entered.

Utility lines and road layouts are said to be a grid.

If you ditch your online life you’re said to be “off the grid.”

The one thing all grids do is attempt to alleviate chaos by providing a system of order.

Until you overlay the grids. That’s when the whole picture changes.
