Everything & More & More – Marina Zurkow and Rachel Rose

The first thing one notices when stepping into New York’s bitforms is the golden-orange color of the gallery walls—they exude a coastal warmth into the typically white-cubed space.

The code displayed is the Harmonized System Commodity Description and Coding System, or Harmonized System (HS for short) which outlines goods that are exported out of the United States. The code is made up of 26,000 items in 99 categories, a specificity of which borders on the absurd.
