The Curious Invention of M. Shoshani's Library
Scroll of 2 layers (1m x 20m)
The Library of Babel imagines a library with a logical architectural stucture, echoeing the logical structure of language as combinations of letters. As the story progresses, this logic is pushed to absurdity and breaks down. The transcription, disrupted by water, follows this collapse as the writing becomes more and more illegible.
This scroll raises questions about the limits of language. The contained knowledge that breaks down and becomes ambigious and suggestive.
