For this project, I wanted to do something with the objects and spaces in my life. I also like playing with the idea of a site as something small, such as an interval between two books on a shelf, or even an object.
I wanted to see how two different kinds of spaces (the library and the museum), with two different kinds of standard behavioral modes, could be negotiated given the alteration of an object in the space. In the library stacks, people search for what they want, touch what’s on the shelf. In the museum, people don’t touch things, people observe and gain understanding from just looking at the surface.
I also wanted to play with the idea of the public and the private object. Library books are to be shared anonymously, clothing is not. The idea of having to touch something intimate to access a municipality.
