Le Corbusiers målebånd

2011 – (open ended)
Performance
Handwowen measuring tape out of wool, primary colors
226 x 3 cm

Based on Le Corbusiers “Modulor”; “It’s a scale of proportions to make the bad difficult, and the good easy” – Einstein.
In the project I look at what is left out when you use standards in architecture and design. In this case, as in so many cases, the male body is the standard. As a performance, I try to use my own body and the too long measuring tape to measure my surroundings.
