The word “scale” has many meanings: an elementary description of size; a tool used to measure weight or length; a set of rules for transformations; it suggests a rubric that is more complex than a straight line. Despite the term’s refusal to be fixed to one meaning, always present is the comparison of one thing to another, implicating the two in a question of perfect balance. There is a malleable space that exists between these two compared points that forms a spectrum of relativity from which many meanings can emerge. The 2020 PLAySPACE Curatorial Team will occupy this space, exploring what happens when one deliberately considers or disrupts that space of equilibrium, calling into question rigid methods of comparison and the systems we use to judge ourselves and the world around us.
