The Table of Book City
Table of book city is a project that questions the condition of today’s bookstores. In a bookstore, books are displayed in hundreds or thousands. Within the condition of such multiplicity, the individuality of each book exerts less significance. This can be somewhat compared to the anonymity one carries in a city.
This proposal exaggerates and commemorates the loss of Individuality. The entire bookstore is reduced down to a table, and books are placed within ‘mirror pits’ where all enclosing sides are made of mirror.
Within these mirror pits, the images of the displayed books are multiplied, creating a single plane of multiplied books to their infinity; This is the table of book city.
