June 30: What About the Grid? [SFTV S02 E05]
By Bar Studio (Derek Chang, Peter Dumbadze, Dustin Murphy, and Young-Tack Oh)
“What About the Grid?” is a situational comedy about how three anthropomorphic animals engage with the gridded plane. Through their interactions with the grid, our protagonists discover how this surface is their tabula rasa for creating new relationships with their surrounding environment. Dealing and coping with experiences that range from the trivial to the significant, the animals develop ways of creating new social interactions vis à vis the grid, and in doing so, learn to redefine its rigid geometries, ultimately attaining a higher level of political and cultural agency.
