‘In terms of identity, the acceleration of information and the exchange of knowledge and cultures through goods, fashion and social media shifts our perception of the world. None of us exist in a static state. Identities are constantly evolving.’ Otobong Nkanga

Contained Measures of Shifting States is an installation and performance piece in which viewers are invited to engage in a dialogue about the intangibility of identity, memory and perception. Two circular tables display a process of elements in constant movement, seen and experienced by the viewer as the elements undergo a shift from solid to liquid and from liquid to vapour.
