Since I moved to Beijing in 2007 people have made comments about my height (which is 200 cm exactly). As a reaction to this constant stream of amazement and good intended jokes about 'the weather up there' I embarked on a three year project. My aim was to deliberately confuse all this attention with 'being famous' and our hope was that this would turn into a self fulfilling prophecy. Which it did, somehow. This book is a document of that journey, and functions also as a life size ruler for anyone up to 2 metres.


The celebrity edition of the book comes in a white cardboard box with a signed and numbered archival pigment print (22 by 29 cm) and a DVD.
