Measured Response brings together contemporary Aboriginal perspectives that engage with bodily and spiritual practices of art-making and often use themselves as a point of reference for measurement and creation; a weaver uses an arm’s reach to measure lengths of string, a ceramicist choreographs their hands to create form, and hand-blown glass needs the artist’s breath to take shape. Measured Response demonstrates how our relationship to the world is calibrated through our bodily dimensions.
