Just moved in to my new place smack in the middle of the city and all I brought with me is a week’s change of clothes, my laptop, and my ever dependable notebook. So let me share with you this beautiful read on keeping notebooks :)
By using unwanted books discarded from public libraries, Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus creates intimate public spaces that encourage reading. Their most recent installation in Melbourne aimed to take control of the public space “in which the traffic withdrew, yielding ground to the modest power of the written word.” The dimly lit books began overflowing in the streets, stealing space amongst the dense traffic. On the closing night of the installation, the books were offered up to the visiting pedestrians, each allowed to choose their favorite books out of the thousands presented to them.
