Sorted Books

Last month my roommate and I hit up the Time-Based Art Festival in Portland, OR. One of the highlights was an installation by Nina Katchadourian called Sorted Books. Katchadourian sorts books in both private and public libraries so the titles tell stories and sometimes express something about their owners. Here’s the one that was on the poster for the exhibition, taken from the library of the New York editors of the journal Shark :

A Day at the Beach by Nina Katchadourian

My roommate and I decided to have a little fun pooling and sorting our own books and below are our homages to Katchadourian. They’re not nearly as good but they were really fun to make. Hope you enjoy!

    Thanks, Nina! My roommate and I absolutely loved your exhibit (the King Lear one was my favourite).
