Jennifer Bartlett: History of the Universe — Works 1970-2011

Twins (2005-6)
"Jennifer Bartlett likes to pose questions, then follow them to logical — or occasionally illogical — conclusions. In the late 1960s, when many conceptual artists were using graph paper to chart their ideas, Ms. Bartlett wondered if she could make hard graph paper that could be wiped clean and revised, and that would resist coffee stains and cigarette ashes. Inspired by subway signs, she fabricated 12-inch-square steel plates coated with baked white enamel and silkscreened with a pale grid on which she could paint with Testor enamels."
