"A number of my recent sculptures and drawings have been given the title 'Measuring Personal Space'. This designation has been chosen to represent a series of related terms which I feel are of great significance for our time.
These include the often-stated need for ‘personal space,’ the more contemporary notion of the ‘comfort zone,’ the desire to become clear of other people, to be able to free oneself from social and professional ties, at least for a moment, and to achieve in so doing some ‘quiet time.’
These common phrases efficiently indicate the complex issues which arise from a consideration of the individual’s place in the world and the, necessarily fragile, balance one must achieve between the public and the private spheres." Bill Scott, 2011
