An experiment in its early days. An idea that maybe can resolve the problem with accessibility. How can I make the content of my books accessible in an exhibition? To let visitors pick up my small books for reading is not a functional option. So I thought, maybe I could expand the book, spread out its content so that it can be viewed without touching. I could build a structure of small boxes covered with prints of the texts and drawings of the book. And the special character of the book object would be preserved e.g. the separation of pages, the spatiality of reading, the temporality of moving from page to page. My fist step is the 30 boxes I have made based on a common unit of length, breadth and depth so they can be put together in several variations. The images show some of the possibilities. Next will be to actually transform one of my books to a tower of boxes and see how it works.
