Measurment-Related Drawing

"In the Measurement-Related Drawing project, the idea of making images related to architecture is combined with a play that involves measuring and delimitating the material that I use for each piece of work. The process can be described as the elaboration of three types of drawings: thread on paper, paper on paper and oil on paper. Every piece represents buildings' facades, floors and houses. At the same time, each of the techniques corresponds to specific measurement criteria: The thread drawings correspond to length, the paper ones to weight and the painting ones to area. 

The quantities of material are established by arbitrary numeric plays."
