      Starting as an empty white room, Roman Ondaks Measuring the Universe at Tate St Ives has grown through the contribution of around 90000 participants to a constellation of black marks. Through the simple action of measuring oneself, Ondaks work doesnt just expand on ideas of space and the universal but also the personal, creating a growing living artwork that questions just what a museum is for.

    Everyone Who Calls. Romans 10:13. Christian Art by Mark Lawrence

He explores beauty born out of coincidence and beyond human imagination; his work echoes the beauty of nature with its ever-changing expression, giving the idea “that the design doesn’t even exist”.
