The central theme in the work of Stanley Brouwn (Paramaribo, 1935- Amsterdam, 2017) is measuring, the bridging of distances and registration of routes. In the early seventies, Brouwn began using his own step to develop a personal measuring system. For this he refers back to old units of measurements such as the foot, the ell and the step. In his version, these are the sb-foot, the sb-ell and the sb-step respectively.

distance = length, length = distance features a large number of artist books in which Brouwn precisely represents measured sizes and routes he has travelled in numbers and series of words.
