Carsten Nicolai, Grid Index (Berlin: Gestalten, 2009), 312 pages. Grid Index, Carsten Nicolai’s exhaustive compendium of grids and tilings, is no exception. Progressing along its lone axis, the book is a sequence of 294 different dissections of the Cartesian plane. It’s a difficult kind of dimensional collapse, arranging the planar into the linear, though imperfect at moments, Nicolai is at home working within self-imposed constraints
You published the books ‘grid index’ and ‘moiré index’ and I was wondering how they are connected to this audio-visual framework. All those books (grid, moiré and the new one called cyclo. id with Ryoji Ikeda) are quite different. They are like my visual archives and I published them so everybody can use them. It’s a kind of dictionary to make visual structures. Sometimes I use them for the live visuals and sometimes I incorporate some concepts. For instance, parts of the moiré book are used a lot for the show with Ryuichi Sakamoto, same with the grid book.
I thought it should be published because it’s a massive work and a beautiful collection. It’s the first book, as far as I know, that tries to categorize and to make a visual example of grids. I see it as a kind of scientific publication. I hope designers, architects, and mathematicians can get some use out of it as well
