LIBRARY OF BABEL
CONCEPTUAL PIECE


A short story by Jorge Luis Borges,
The Library of Babel. The brief asked to interpret
the story in three different versions using:

- text (ORDER)
- text and image (OBSESSION)
- wordless (INFINITY)





THE CASE

Made out of concrete it weights 59 kg and was
packed in the specially made shockproof box
coming all the way from Latvia.






OBSESSION (text + image)

The author carries a certain feature throughout
the text  - obsession. In this book I’m showing
obsession using text as image. Each word has been
taken out of the text, alphatised and then
handwritten multiple times to creat these beautiful
and unique patterns.






INFINITY (wordless)

Pop-up book - all hand drawn, every circle is
unique and different. This book shares the
author's description of how each and every
book in the Library is one of a kind.







ORDER (text)

Author in his story has mentioned 5 shelves
with 35 books in each so I have kept this
concept - 5 lines of text with exactly 35 letters
in each causing chaotic line breaks.

“Disorder only exists if there is order.”
(J.L. Borges)
