A simple grid of horizontal and vertical black lines with varied spacing.

Token Grid, 2019, Ethereum DApp

The grid is a Modernist icon and the underlying organizational form of many aspects of our daily lives. Whether a North American city street plan, a power grid, the face of Internaional Style-architecture, page layout in print or onscreen or the pixels of that screen, grids pervasively organize our activities and experiences.

This one exists on the Ethereum blockchain with a graphical user interface accessible via the world wide web. In contrast to the fixed grids of city streets and architectural structures, anyone can change it but only if they are willing to procure and then burn one of the grid smart contract’s ERC-20 digital tokens in order to do so.
