Stanley Brouwn - Portrait 2005
Brouwn is interested in the poetry of measurement, of how measurement is used to represent reality, specifically measurements of his own body or the bodies of others. Brouwn often references his own height, the length of his stride, or the tracing of his route while walking through a city. This portrait was commissioned by its owner, and is comprised of the exact height of the subject transferred to a bar of aluminum.
