Setting Out 4 transposes what is conventionally horizontal, to the vertical plane of a wall. String used in the construction industry to transfer architectural drawings onto the ground, forms a line drawing referencing a floor plan of a dwelling. Setting out 4 refers to a home on the Wyndham Court estate in central Southampton. The lengths of string correspond to the circumference of each room whilst paper markers denote the architectural elements of these spaces.
