Personal square

COVID-19 meant we all had to maintain an “appropriate distance” from each other. If 1.5 metres was the minimum distance in The Netherlands, then what could be the maximum distance? How much space would there actually be for every inhabitant of the Netherlands?
You’ll see a yellow square measuring 49.03 metres by 49.03 metres. An area of 2,404 m². This is how much space every Dutch person would have if you divided the Netherlands equally among its population. This work is a physical depiction of what your personal space could be. Well? How does it feel? How big should your personal space be? And what about other countries?
