Process of re-contextualising objects
A variety of techniques have been tested to indicate which were the most appropriate and effective technique for the object material to remove existing measurement graphics and reapply the new metric details. The following photos document the most effective techniques used.
Measuring spoon
The existing graphics were removed with sandpaper and replaced using tattoo paper. It is measured using the spoon's diameter.
Timer
Time was converted from minutes/seconds to mm/cm by measuring the distance between the two lines of one minute. Graphics were removed with sand paper and replaced using tattoo paper.
Measuring cup
The volume graphics (mL/ cups) were converted by simply measuring the length of the existing details. Graphics were printed backwards on decal paper, transferred on to the glass and set with a few minutes in the microwave.
Weight Scale
The volume graphics (mL/ cups) were converted by simply measuring the length of the existing details. Graphics were printed backwards on decal paper, transferred on to the glass and set with a few minutes in the microwave.​​​​​​​
