The Measure of It

Counting, tallying and weighing….stops along the road of acknowledging an obsession or addiction. This installation narrates one of those moments of awareness - a smeared and overwritten count of what’s been consumed, boxes stacked and crumpling under their own weight, and a sagging ceiling created by the weight of what’s been poured. The enclosure conveys how isolation contributes to the perpetuation of an addiction - oneself the only standard of measurement. Without the objectivity of others there’s no true measure of the problem.
