Mason Twine/A Body Measure alludes to the strand of mason twine that will be used in the performance, a chord historically used for measuring objects. The mason twine will be connected to the performer and to Grace Exhibition Space via four of its structural columns, drawn tight, and wrapped around four plastic bags of Styrofoam chips. At appointed times, the performer, covered in red paint, will crash into these bags, crushing and scattering the contents over the space. And the mason twine will be cut and gathered to create drawings on the wall, while live video feed will be projected during and after the completion of the performance, continuing to play throughout the remainder of the exhibition.
