Yorgos Sapountzis, ‘Fast Cast’ and ‘Die Welt in Teilen (Office)’ (2011)

Yorgos Sapountzis takes the recognized dimensions of paving stones found in the city of Berlin and uses them to create a measuring device (a grid of of aluminium poles and fabric) to measure all floor areas of the gallery. These grids (colour coded for each room) are then collapsed and hung from the walls.
