One of the revelations of show is the discovery that the Anglo Saxon noun "hide" is

associated with an apportionment of land. In the linguistic history, therefore, a brutal set of

equivalences is sedimented: the carrying capacity of the land needed to feed a flock stands in a

relationship of mathematical equivalence to the product, the amount of wool clip. This highly

instrumental form of equivalence is examined in the main installation: the outlines of the farm

boundaries are clipped from the fleece, making up an exact equivalence in the encofflning

shape which then contains the product, as though the wool had a willingness of its own and

 fell neatly into the prepared receptacle. ( David Bunn, opening speech , 2000)
