Elastic Frontiers

DAN SHIPSIDES - Elastic Frontiers - Height with magazines


Height with magazines ( High and Mountain)

Magazines, pencil

Working, really for the first time, within a school environment, I was aware of discussions about success and achievement and how these are measured.

Asking the ubiquitous questions of "how has the project effected you?" or "what is the impact of the project?" Height with magazines uses a stack of (vintage) mountaineering magazines to suggest an absurd way of measuring or assessing an expansion or ‘growth' in stature, knowledge and experience. This work accumulated names and height through the exhibition period.
