"Based upon years of research, artist and musician Carsten Nicolai has discovered and unlocked the visual code for visual systems into a systematic equation of grids and patterns." Geez. That's a pretty bold claim, but I gotta say, if there's anyone who could do it, it's Carsten Nicolai. Nicolai's music and art has been has been exploring and exploiting the grid for years. "Unlocked" is the key word here. The appearance of rigidity and coldness to be found in the grid has been proven again and again to be an illusion by Nicolai. A true believer, he knows we desire it. He knows we need it. He knows we'd get lost without it, even when we're leaving it behind.
