Mapping the immeasurable

Our very first measuring tools were our bodies. Today we have advanced techniques to measure and map our surroundings. Still, it is always through the body we experience and try to make sense of our reality. It is both a limitation, and what makes it possible to perceive the world. The tools and systems we create to explain the reality around us become extensions of ourselves.

In my project I’ve been approaching the immeasurable and unmappable contexts of our world and reality. I have reached beyond the borders of what science can map to an abstract reality we are all part of, but unable to grasp.

Through making, together with clay and wood, I’m navigating from a wider perspective where there are no landmarks and where my position is unclear.
