Potentielles Feiertagsprojekt: Bücher nach Farben sortieren
Chris Cobb rearranged 20.000 books for his installation „There Is Nothing Wrong In This Whole Wide World”.
A friend of mine owns a bookstore and after a year of negotiating back and forth he finally allowed me to take over his store for a week, and to allow me to bring in my whole team of like 15 people, which is what I estimate it’ll take, maybe 20, and in one nightI’ve planned it outif we stick to the guidelines, we can completely change the store.Hmm. Ob ich das mit meinen Büchern auch mal ausprobieren sollte?
I think there’s seven shelves in every unit. So you can estimate the number of books pretty accurately. It’s around 20,000 books. Because of how they’re positioned, I can map them out and give coordinates for every book. It’ll be, like, shelf 3, row 1. Each book will be given its own designation, so that after they’re all taken out and rearranged by color, when it comes time to put them back I can just go back to shelf 3, row 1, or whatever, and I’ll know exactly where they go.
