Entry Description

This is an exhibition that concentrates on the book as a concept and the book as a medium. In this scenario, both, final design outcomes as well as its prototyping processes are particularly meaningful. The installation re-enacts the process of designing, i.e., the way a book page layout is designed. Therefore, all elements in the exhibition design refer to page and layout hierarchy and composition in the installation space. All books and its book prototypes are exhibited as if they would be part of a layout of a large book page. The table that presents the books exhibited — which was custom made for this exhibition — is shaped as a large unfolded sheet of paper or brochure that appears almost floating in the air. The audience/reader contributes to re-arrange the books in the table-page layout with their reading, browsing and general bodily interactions. In this manner, the audience/reader is considered as an active co-creator and as an important collaborator in the redesign of the exhibition space.
