Setting Out 3 (2021) transposes what is conventionally on a horizontal plane to the vertical plane of the wall. String used in the construction industry, to transfer architectural drawings onto the ground, forms a line drawing whose composition references floor plans of a generic Belfast terrace, similar to the type once found in Hector Street near the MAC. Paper markers on the string demarcate lengths corresponding to the circumference and  architectural characteristics of each room, such as the placement of doors, indexing the spatial logic of these properties.
