Ark: Rintala Eggertsson, Norway
Ark is a tower of books inserted to connect book shop and library. Its as if the skin of the building has been flayed; it’s like looking at the cells of a library once the skin has been peeled away. What is word for opposite of spine?
Held together by cross braced wires it can be seen visibly moving as inhabitants move through it. Books are like leaves on a tree, a fragile covering made to seem all the more temporary by seeing other books pass by loose in the museum held in other peoples hands.
