PA 24: Some Among Them are Killers explores unmanaged landscapes, territories that the author calls "wildernesses." These emerge from the cracks of mapping the spaces, at a variety of scales, that literally reside in the margins of error of our abilities to measure and calibrate space. From Yosemite National Park to the ubiquitous one-gallon milk jug, architect David Ross depicts the relationships between architecture and miscalibration and explores the spatial, tactile, and political ramifications of our reliance on modern devices of precision and over determination.
