‘Go wander creature where sign guides.
Go measure earth, weigh air and state the tides
Instruct the planets in what orbs to run
Memorise old time and regulate the sun’.
Na Kim worked in response to a jumbled memory fragment outlining the laws of entropy. She created a large advertising billboard filled with abstract graphic symbols of organising tools that references a sentence where mankind is instructed to measure the earth.
