Description

Taking the shape of an accordion-fold book, this sculpture contains LED-lit quotes by local authors Anne Lamott, Ben Fong-Torres and Jewelle Gomez. There are also quotes from Spike Lee, Groucho Marx and Jorge Luis Borge, and the selections were chosen by community members and library patrons.

The ‘cover’ of the book was created to look like a rock slab covered with petroglyphs, and the back cover features illustrations and symbols that show the history of Mission Bay.

This work was commissioned for the new Mission Bay Library as part of the Branch Library Improvement Program.
