Subject matter
This print is part of a portfolio made in collaboration with Experiments in Art and Technology (EAT) and Moderna Museet as a fundraising effort. Alex Hay was known variously for his performance and conceptual art pieces, which included dances made in conjunction with Robert Rauschenberg. This work recreates a wholly familiar object, a gridded draft of a project filled with measurements, but for what purpose is not made clear. Hay additionally does not take a pre-exisiting piece of graph paper, but draws it himself. Hay recreates a mass produced object, which is in turn mass produced. There is seemingly some commentary about the fleeting presence of hand made objects.
