HARRY SANDERSON World Grid
A grid acts as an organising principle for a series of random inputs. The addition of order into a series of random variables will produce a form which reflects that ordering principle, if only as a shadow or trace.
The sculptures presented in World Grid act as analogue sorting mechanisms, as cyphers for the capacity of concrete abstraction to structure organic matter, density, distribution, surface tension.
These sculptures display simulations of dynamics and forces which you are not permitted to know. They are a black box, an encrypted file, an undisclosed leak. It is usually presumed that a simulation is obliged to imitate or model a dynamic relation external to itself, to act as a tool for prediction or preparation. These simulations express only themselves. The mathematical relation between a flow of water and a grid.
