SOA Faculty/Staff Art Show: detail

By Jeanne Brown on February 8, 2008 2:09 PM | Permalink
I'd like to draw your attention to Glenn Novak's entry in the faculty art show. I am especially interested in it because it relates to the library, the books that have not been used in the library, and how those books might be worth a second look. Please note that his entry is in multiple parts: on the wall with the other faculty entries AND sheets on the wall around the elevators shaft on both first and second floors. Take some time to examine this in detail! Here is what the artist writes to accompany his entry. This work and accompanying installation is about this library and our interactions with it: the space, the books, and the information within each. Library staff provided a list of books that have seldom or never been checked out or even de-shelved since being incorporated into the Architecture Studies Library collection. The act of uncovering these books, thumbing through each one, finding something of interest, and recording moments of the browsing process become the sequence that drove the installation. While the arrangement of findings can be seen as a metaphor for the information contained within the walls of this library and the possibility of multiple items within the collection escaping the school by way of under-use, the installation’s main goals are to illustrate the opportunities found when chance encounters are enabled by perusing the depths of the stacks… and to offer a glimpse of the following concept: all information is related and can be integrated. Any one page of the installation may not seem to be of interest on its own, but the sum of experiencing and assimilating all pages may be exceptionally thought provoking. Happy Consilience. glenn np nowak
