Johannes Langkamp – To Measure is to Know

Kinetic sculpture, 2015
Wood, bolts, motor, measuring tape
105 x 14 x 105cm (length, width & hight)


For this kinetic sculpture a humble tool is recast in a new role. A steel tape measure, bent on itself, moves mechanically from side to side, the apex of its triangle covering a distance of 20 centimeters. The work plays with presentation forms and notions of functionality.
