me and you according to beaufort scales

This series of printed objects, prints and drawings reflect a question of what we can concretely know about our relationships- the self and the other. I begin to probe this notion by using otherwise rational systems of measurement absurdly out of conventional contexts. Making order out of chaos is by definition what a beaufort scale attempts to do- a measurement derived from observed conditions at sea. These prints show the underlying fragility I find in our understanding of communication within relationships.
