Journal – To Measure is to Know Impressions

The video “To Measure is to Know” from Roland Quelven appears to me an interpretation of the quote shown at the beginning of the video; “When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it” Lord Kelvin. The reverberating audio and ambient noise escalates in frequency until about the 1 min mark which then after returning to lower tones. As the video starts an overlay of a measurement scale fluctuating beneath 10 percent switches to a 20 percent about midway through before returning to 10 percent measurement by the end. It appears that the man issuing through some ritual as he discusses to the viewer the results of his experiments and numbers because of the overlapping images of coiled lights and numeric scales.
