These days, success is often measured in numbers: how much money something made, how many people were involved, how many things were produced. Funders require these figures for their reporting, and the crowdsourcing trend reinforces the idea that big numbers are better. But where does that leave small-scale and experimental work? What of galleries that occupy tiny spaces, or one-on-one encounters between artists and their public? I have participated in many excellent small scale art projects and events over the years, with necessarily limited numbers.
