String Theory
Distances can be measured in many different ways. You could walk 100 miles by walking in a straight line or walking around a 1 mile loop 100 times. This sculpture/graphic uses this idea.

The piece consists of numerous pieces of sting, rope and chain all mounted in different patterns. Dimensions are given so the viewer can calculate how long each piece is. The calculations the viewer has to do vary in complexity, from simple adding up to fairly tricky Calculus involving Hyperbolic Functions, ouch!

The piece has a plywood base with a mounted graphic which shows all the various dimensions, the rope is attached to the base by small pins.
