Measuring the missing

GH made Measuring the missing in 2013 and included the artwork in Sydney Contemporary 13 at the The Commercial, Sydney, in 2013. Measuring the missing is a standalone artwork. The artwork's medium includes watercolour and lead pencil on cotton and paper, and the magazine Vault #4, and comprises of three components measuring, overall, 87.8 x 31.2 + 'x' (where x is the distance between the bag and the missing centre) x 5.4 cm.

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF MEASURING THE MISSING
We were measuring the light well when a stranger walked past with a Vault magazine in a bag missing its centre.
Unseen by the stranger, the missing centre hung on the wall as a painting. Astonished, we tried to measure the coincidence, but it passed too quickly.
