on the top example with all the colored boxes i started to look at the white boxes to see if there were letters being made there. the color establishes and reinforces a sense of dimensionality that isn't necessarily in the uncolored version. the white boxes (negative space) could make up some pretty interesting letterforms.when the grid is uncolored, your eyes can form a range of flat and dimensional shapes almost on command, and it can shift rapidly. i don't recall what all you've been working on -- if anything -- outside of this study. the only other thing on your blog for type is the "grid structure' paper, so i don't know exactly what your questions are. there are some questions implicit in the paper, but you might benefit from more of a focused set of questions. the unique grid you're currently using is a good start, but you don't seem to be pursuing it with any sort of zeal. perhaps those questions will set you on a more deliberate path.let me know if i can help in any way.
