Some Powers of Ten

Curatorial Project
221A Artist Run Centre

Drawing from the 1968 Eames film Powers of Ten, this exhibition addressed the multiple and nested scales at which we perceive and interact with the built environment. Co-opting the language of architecture, construction and cartography, four emerging artists and designers negotiated the representation of an urban context, exposing the ways in which perception is augmented by zooming in or out.
