This group corresponds with an apt presentation of “grids / lines” to the extent that here, too, freehand lines in red crayon are fixed into the rectangular frame of the sheet. In this case, the grid structure is replaced by the connection between the drawn structure and the edge of the sheet, which has been retained in the form of a thin framing strip. Because of the fact that the drawing has been taken up to the edges of the picture, however, it is not complete in itself but evokes the idea of being continued beyond them. The square format provides a neutral field of vision.
Divis is a typographical term describing the hyphen inserted at the end of a line to divide up a word. The symbol has a double function, it separates and connects, represents the linking element between the end of a line and the beginning of the new one – in the same way that in her work on paper the frame simultaneously connects and breaks up the line.
Hinsberg repeatedly finds pithy terms for her work groups, often borrowed from the language of science with its reliance on Latin. In this way she underscores the analytical character of her investigations, inserts them into a historical lineage, and simultaneously create a poetic linguistic field for them.
