Size of work: 29.7 x 42 cm (each); 60 x 84 cm (installation size), Edition 2/8
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.
