Sculptural work that fuses together the numerical actuality of measurement and the use of common non-art, everyday objects on an essential level. The work comprises of multiple tape measures placed on the floor. Each measure has an audio recording and playback function and visitors are encouraged to interact with the objects and record sounds.

 

'Made to Measure' considers how conditions defined by a pandemic can inform activism through the language of sculpture.
