A participatory artwork by Roman Ondák grows over time as more and more people contribute.

The ‘Taking Place’ exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam is currently hosting a very unique artwork. Measuring the Universe by Roman Ondák is an ever-evolving wall drawing that looks to its visitors to help create the work. The art began with an empty room with white walls and as museum attendants measure and inscribe each visitor’s height, name and date on the walls, the room slowly transforms into a collective drawing over the course of the exhibition.
