Measuring Project began after almost all the mats for this exhibition had been completed, forming a kind of  sketchbook for thinking about what might be unrolled in the mat. It is made as a photomedia essay, introduced  by its first chapter in this inaugural presentation. Groups of people are photographed on the mat in a series of  different social interactions, or acts of gathering, performing within some of the motifs we find through the  other works.
