    Experimental book installation

Artist Statement:


    Print Wikipedia is an artwork in which software parses the entirety of the Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out a full set of over nearly 7500 volumes and then uploads these volumes to Lulu.com, a print-on-demand website. The installation displays a set of these printed volumes against a print of a schematic rendering of one bookshelf of volumes. This bookshelf will contain 150 volumes, or 2% of the whole set. The adhesive print is mounted to the wall, and one shelf is mounted on top of the print; this shelf holds the set of books.
