the measure of all things is a site-specific in-progress mix media project that explores the idea of humans as the perfect geometric model of nature itself. DaVinci's Vitruvian Man, a drawing of a man as part of a circle and a square, not only was the solution of an ancient riddle of squaring the circle, but captured the perfection of the human body, demonstrating that the Renaissance man, as God's supreme creation, was the measure of all things. This idea is explored here by creating circular spaces of self-like photo drawings, which are then placed in the natural world to probe if the measurements of man are indeed distributed in nature as once believed.
