About the Grid

Each Monogrid artwork gets initialized with a start up algorithm that builds up a set of rectangles and fills them with pixels. The style of the initial filling depends on the position in the main grid.

The first row (#00-0F) starts with a low density pixel grid. The density increases up to the middle row (#70-7F), where the pixel grid converts into a line grid. From the middle (#80-8F) to the bottom (#F0-FF) the density decreases again.
The color balance fades from white on the left column (#00-F0) to black on the right column (#0F-FF).
The complexity of the initial setup is highest in the middle (#77, #78, #87, #88) and gradually reduces to the outside. The dynamic of the animation works in the opposite direction. The simpler the structure, the higher the dynamic of the movement.

There is a set of 16 animations at work. 4 noise based animations, 4 shifting animations, 4 modulo based animation and 4 reset animations, all run in parallel. Each animation selects a rectangle from the initial setup and edits the pixels in this area. The selection process runs independently and animations can overlap which results in a new style of animation.

Kim Asendorf, 2021



Pricing Scheme

The initial pricing scheme is based on the position in the main grid. There is a tiered pricing system from the outer artworks towards the more rare artworks in the center and the edges of each row and column.
