Library of the future

‘Library of the Future’

Deventer will have a new library. 3 artists and 3 designers have been asked to give their vision on ‘the library of the future’.

My work focusses on the printed book versus ‘the cloud’. More and more information comes to us, via all kinds of screens. Everyone can upload, everyone can share. The cloud of information will grow, but I speak for the book and it’s values of it’s physical presence. The weight, the smell, notes in the margin, the memory of when you received it and where you took it to read. Communication is in development, non-stop, but the book has proved to be of importance, till now, and hopefully in the future, as a strong contra weight of the cloud. In the sculpture, the books are poured in concrete, and literally balances out the bookshelf.

Other participants are: Jean Klare, Bas Kools, and architects Ellen Schild, Fulco Treffers and Daniël Venneman.

The exhibition is open on Saterdays, from 13.00h until 16.00h, at the Stromarkt in Deventer. Location; Bibliotheek van Nieuwsgierigheid (Library of Curiosity)
