Measures of Inequity

Measures of Inequity features a series of sculptures that give material form to visual representations concerned with the measurement of inequality in a wide range of disciplines, from economics and sociology to management and gender studies. Focusing mostly on the past thirty years, but with references covering over a century, the starting point for these works are graphs and diagrams culled from academic journals, reports and other specialized publications.

In the sculptures, a variety of simple techniques are employed to render the ways in which researchers have conceived and characterized the distribution of access to care, education, income, wealth and several other factors, by countries or states, and between groups of people. The linguistic articulations involved in their representation are also depicted.
