Hovering within the viewer's line of sight, this work acts as a marker within the perceptual field against which viewers can measure themselves. As Morris wrote, 'In the perception of relative size the human body enters into the total continuum of sizes and establishes itself as a constant on that scale'. One of Morris's few hanging sculptures, Untitled was made of fibreglass using an industrial moulding process.
