Carsten Nicolai Grind Index

I’ve raved about how much I love the work of Carsten Nicolai before. But just discovered his amazing book Grid Index

Grid Index is the first comprehensive visual lexicon of patterns and grid systems. It is an essential reference book for designers, visual artists, architects, researchers and mathematicians. From the simplest grids made up entirely of squares to the most complex irregular ones with infinitely unpredictable patterns of growth, the book itself is a work of art.

All visual information and forms, whether illustration, graphic design, painting or architecture are comprised of two dimensional grids and patterns, much like the way that computer information is made up of zeroes and ones. 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.
