Personal Calibrator
Personal Calibrator is a recording devise for me to relate my own foot to previous units of measure as well as allowing for further adaptations in the future. The spacers in this piece allow me to adjust my footprint to correct it for standards used throughout Western history. The notion of using a foot becomes rather impractical in terms of precision, but as long as a standard length is agreed upon, it works well. Therefore, this arbitrary length works on a practical level and speaks in a more interpretive way about our existence and relates the most basic form of human transportation to distance.
