This is a work of art, »Measuring the Universe«, an installation by the Slovakian Artist Roman Ondák (*1966). As a part of the artist’s presentation at New York’s Museum of Modern Art the visitors were asked to mark their body heights by writing their names along the exhibition rooms’ walls. A blurry black band along the gallery’s walls represents the spread of the visitors’ heights.
Ahhh! To be – for once – average!
We’re pretty sure about this: Success isn’t at all about comparing oneself with someone else, one own’s performance and achievements with someone else’s. Much more: To find ourselves, learn who we really are?
