Relics and Reliquaries: Tape Measure

Inside Reliquary Box
2011
Mixed on archival support
Once the round box is ready I glue paper diagrams on the interior surfaces. Sometimes I might use material like metal, or cloth. In this piece I used diagrams from texts that in some way reference the object / tape measure. I always enjoy this part of the process, it gives the object some type of context.
