"We must question the issue of the intersection of the grid and the erotic body. A grid or mesh allows us to map space. A grid speaks of extensivity. endlessness, sameness, and the potential to calculate and define the indefinable. Could the grid, when laid over the smooth contours of a body, shape and discipline the unruliness of the growth of form? The grid monitors. The grid disciplines. The grid imposes a phylum on a growing ontology. The grid seeks relationships. The grid enmeshes the instrumental into the social. The mesh seeks networks of relationships on the surface of the moving and dynamically growing 'digital flesh'" (p.272).
