This exhibition brings together six artists using systems of measurement. The map, the index, and the ruler give representation to ideas, objects, histories, or their surroundings. During translation things are lost, or understood. The map is 1 to 1. The ruler is personal. The idea is made concrete. The region erased.  Color becomes sound.
