Ron Mueck: In Bed
The London-based hyper-realist sculptor Ron Mueck's recent intriguing work, "In Bed", is hard to resist.
Commentary on scale in architecture is common in a spatial sense, with much of our education revolving around it. Yet as humans, the scale between ourselves seems to be ever increasing. In our own office there is a 50 cm difference in height between the tallest and shortest, a major problem when it comes to purchasing (and no doubt designing) task chairs. This kind of realism could yet be real.
