this installation makes perceptible the tension between standardised measures and the way we calculate relationships through an affective measure that people deploy when moving in a variety of everyday situations. These everyday calculations involve complex correlations of abstract ideas of time and space, global and local, geometry and topography, and often leave us up in the air and feeling like the rug has been pulled out from where we are standing. The exhibition will explore how everyday practices of measuring when walking, thinking, and moving our bodies overlap with larger global systems and imaginations.
