‘An object for measuring distance’ is an ongoing autobiographical piece that documents and links together the places I go in a manner that mirrors today’s abilities in rapid travel.

Retroreflectors are used in nautical and astronautic applications to measure distances; There are a few such objects on the moon for this reason.

I created a retroreflective object, and I bring it during travel and document its existence at destinations. By bringing with me such a waymarker, I connect the places I go with a lyrical poeticism that is nevertheless rooted in the rigors of physics."
