'Measuring the Universe' is a participatory artwork based on museum-goers and their personal data.

Created by Slovakian artist Roman Ondák, the work begins with an empty room with white walls. Museum-visitors can help shape the work by having their heights, their names and the date inscribed on the gallery walls by a museum attendant. Over the course of an exhibition, the white walls gradually evolve into an collective drawing made up of individual pieces of data.

'Measuring the Universe' takes part in the exhibition Taking Place currently showing at the Temporary Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
