Navigating the Grid


Brian Judy, the creator of "The Grid," has worked in computer gaming industry, and his latest piece displays a hint of a gaming sensibility. Those who log on take an active role by intuitively scrolling their cursors across the matrix-like structure of the home page, void of navigational directions. Various abstract digital forms appear. It takes time, patience, and a sense of adventure to figure out how to maneuver through the site to get to different levels of this multilayered work of net art -- sort of like pondering a modernist painting, only this one moves...and keeps moving, the more you scroll and click.
