Systems 02: Formal Games

Formal Game Example 01: No Overlap
What if a system is in place where the rules do not allow the various pieces of a painting or collage to touch or overlap? What if the pieces are always alone together? Here are some artists who have worked with such a system.

Formal Game Example 02: Play The Grid
What if the objects in a drawing, painting, collage or photograph you were creating had to play by the rules and therefore be aligned in some way to an underlying grid structure?
