1999 – 2018 Installation composed of a double arrow in white neon, delivered with wiring, transformer and complete installation protocol of the artist. Daniel Firman created the first version of “Dimension variables” in 1999 for an exhibition called “scattering-gathering”. The artist proposed a reflection on the flexibility that memory or the body maintain with the objective dimension. Using the arrow sign, a universal symbol for noting a rib, Daniel Firman draws it in A4 format, the standard we use most often on a daily basis. Two arrows, hat-shaped, placed like sconces on a wall, signify a dimension, that of the wall or that of a piece of furniture, in the same way that the architect or the carpenter probably did before builds these everyday elements. Firman reveals a frequent human exercise: to take the dimension of the world. Whether it is to observe it or to construct it, this exercise in measuring the world always remains on our scale, because beyond a certain threshold, it becomes difficult for us to build. To the generic title of the “Variable Dimensions” series is added the measurement recorded by the person installing it, giving the work a unique character.
