Graph paper day - Hanne Darboven at Petzel & Jennifer Bartlett at Marianne Boesky

(Petzel, Boesky)

Graph paper day at CAD. Where one's accounting system attempted visual coherence we could call organization or even "aesthetic" - the other had no problem fully opening its system to endless all encompassing meaninglessness. Of course it's not true. Both are equally meaningless. But the ones desire to cohere some graphic, pattern, or reason fulfills its function as art. The other made an ocean.
