Tao Na (born 1980) reinvents the square as a formal constraint, envisioning it not as a vehicle for color (as per Albers) but as the ubiquitous pixel of the digital age--the building block of the images of today. When exhibited, her tiny painted squares amass themselves into vast installations. Displaced is the first publication on her work.
