Book 02 – The Pilgrimage of the Tiber
The project examined the typology of the library for the Didactic Museum of Ancient Manuscripts in Tivoli, Italy. Rather than exploring the configuration of conventional spaces the project sought to explore the library through the scale of a book, the book becoming an expression physical and imagined spaces.
The second book attempted to map through the page. The previous Paper Trail Atlas had extruded the drawing / diagram into a physical object, Book 02 intended to form a spatial pilgrimage linking disparate elements of the book, not as object resting on the page but as spaces through it. These images and texts served as the context for the models, which were used to heighten and make the reader aware of specific images and texts within the book. These models continually varied the readers viewpoint revealing and hiding elements within the book by shifting the formal and resultant spatial condition as one flipped through the pages.
