Sheridan O’Neal submits Roman Ondak #5

Sheridan O’Neal submits Roman Ondak

Ondak’s performance pieces and installation often rely on the involvement of the audience in order to create the work. His most notable work is “Measuring the Universe”.  It is an installation with a performative aspect in which the audience is given black markers and then their measurements are recorded in a white room on the walls of the gallery. It visually records all the people who participate in the installation and visit the gallery. I think this is a great installation because it is something so simple that can have so many different meanings. This work of art is very unifying of the public because of personalizing each height line with name, age and date.
