ANTHROPOMETRY

In 1986 NASA published their Manned System Integration Standards handbook for the design of workstations and habitats for outer space. The research leading to this publication involved several studies measuring the human body, including a ‘grasp-reach’ study. For this sculpture Cerqueira Leite reenacted NASA’s grasp reach study within a large, clay-lined mold, while sitting on a model of NASA’s Space Shuttle chair. The resulting spherical sculpture not only demonstrates the artist’s reach, but re-defines the borders and form of her body as action.
