Size: 39.4 W x 66.9 H x 19.7 D in
The Measuring Device for Negative Space is a human sized profile gauge, where the bars made of glass are set in tubes that can be adjusted up and down. By placing a piece of paper underneath and using a thread with a pendulum/wheigt a topological drawing can be made of the human form that presses itself against the glass bars. The markings on the glass represent the different measurments.
