Daniel Buren (born 1938 in Paris, France) lives and works in situ. Since 1965, he uses the alternated white and colored stripes always in 8.7 cm in width, and the place where the work is created is measured by the stripes as a unit of common measurement. Then, the stripes which are place in the site assure visually the same function than the graduations of a ruler of measure.
Professor of Research Program (1997)
