Artifacts of Countability

This collection of rulers and stencils turns “count-ability” on its side. It demonstrates the contradictions inherent to the act of measuring one thing in particular: the qualitative components of stories. To define a set of narrative structures, as we have done throughout linguistic history, is to allow for a transparent look at the manner in which meaning is made. Perhaps this transparency enriches one’s eventual propensity for storytelling. Perhaps, instead, it limits one’s ability to see beyond the surface and narrows the potential for stories to fill other voids.
