A sculpture of a foot where the middle part has been extended to 1 meter, or 3.28 feet. With this sculpture I aim to reflect upon different systems of measurement used in the world.
My native country, Sweden introduced the metric system as the primary system in the mid 19th century. United Kingdom, where I currently live and where this sculpture was created, introduced it around 1990. Still the system with feet and inches is widely spread.
It is not my intention for the sculpture to ridicule either system - it is merely a refleciton.
