Height and Weight is composed of multiple bronze castings of Alexandra Rose's personal clothing items. The series dissects self-identity through the outward persona of attire. The life-size bronze pieces are hung in the order of her height where each piece is suspended according to where it would hang upon the body of Rose. Prior to being cast in bronze, the clothing items were first glued to her body exploring the theme of shedding to allow growth. The title is derived from the commonality of using height and weight to describe our bodies for identification purposes. The title is also a reference to the weight attributed to clothing as a form of personal presentation, and the discomfort that can arise from the gravity of other peoples' judgments based on how one presents the self.
