Ruler

Measuring is both objective and subjective practice. It is a representation to quantifying, to converting the continuous into discrete pieces, fractions, to parcel the world out. It is but a convention though, imposing a frame to the objective world, a scheme to  reality. However, we measure with a purpose in mind. Measuring supports the creation of a representation of the space, a virtual space; it lets us experiment with it. Thus, what one has measured is susceptive of manipulation. One can reflect on different measures, different ways of measuring, and good measuring requires practice. For the reflective practitioner, a ruler can be thought of both as an object-in-hand and object-at-hand.
