A Question of Scale discusses one of the issues most central to the making and reception of art: size. In considering art, the term scale plays a fundamental role as it refers to the size of an art object in relation to another object. The relative size of an artwork tends to be compared to the size of the human body - giving rise to descriptive terms such as life-sized, miniature and monumental that use the human body as a benchmark or reference. Scale thus highlights the capacity of an artwork to respond to a specific location and place, while also calling into question the
role of the viewer. How does one think about size as internal to form, or, for that matter, how does it frame the artwork as a function of responses between meaning and materiality? In short, scale forces viewers to rethink artwork in the most visceral terms possible.
