  • Library Appropriation Project

    In the Library Appropriation Project I continue with the theme of appropriated space.  Instead of strict documentation, I create maquettes inside of books to be placed in the library.  Unexpected discovery of the inserted art objects creates a rupture for the viewer doing research.  Not only do I appropriate the function and space of the library, but I also appropriate history and the subjects that are meant to be found in the books I have chosen.  The function the library is temporarily negated, bringing into question the predetermined form of this structure.
