Industry Standard

Installation with cast iron (gold & nickel plating, and raw grey iron), steel, found uniforms with hand embroidery, hard cover books, wood, plastic, and acrylic signage.

Industry Standard is an installation that draws inspiration on value and regulated criteria placed on by industry standards set in industrial institutions. These standards bring about measures of value in modes of production.

In this installation these values are deteremined by three components: worker assembly kit wall castings, work uniforms with hand embroidered mantra and G-code manuals.
