World’s Longest Sock Doll

In Mercer Union’s newly restored peep hole exhibition space, Seth Scriver will be “continually showing a loop of the world’s longest sock doll. Some people try to stretch their socks while others measure inaccurately in attempts to out do the length of this sock doll, but let it be assured this sock doll is naturally the longest. The sock doll will be shown through a specially designed peephole to show it in its entirety, where you will be able to see it in the space-time dimension of number three, and where particles of Bosons and Fermions will be present.”

Seth Scriver, born and raised in Toronto, is Prime Minister of Hassle Castle and Co-founder of Krumplestiltskin’s frog skin manipulator. He is a certified scaffolding safety advisor and an interdisciplinary artist.
