Title:  ≈   or   Approximately Equal To

Approximately Equal To is a conceptual exploration of the tacit knowledge and fluency of skill which develop through creative practice. Based on David Pye's theory of craftsmanship and design, it gives these concepts, which are difficult to communicate, a physical representation. The knowledge and skills are given physical value by informing units on scientific apparatuses and measuring instruments. Each unit is derived from the judgement of a skilled practitioner and each represents a different type of creative knowledge or skill. Collectively they form the AET or Approximately Equal To system of measure.
