TateShots: Roman Ondak, Measuring the Universe

The description:

“Starting as an empty white room, Roman Ondak’s ‘Measuring the Universe’ at Tate St Ives grew through the contribution of around 90,000 participants to a constellation of black marks.

Through the simple action of measuring oneself, Ondak’s work doesn’t just expand on ideas of space and the universal but also the personal, creating a growing living artwork that questions just what a museum is for.”

Did your parents measure you against a wall or doorframe when you were a kid?

What do you see when you look at these walls?   Data?   Art?   Stories?
