Where the Things Go

 

 Where the Things Go (Bookworm Library); 2019, decomposed books, wood, organic material

Where the Things Go explores the ephemerality of culture versus the cycles in nature, it utilizes entropy as a transformative force while aiming at recycling both books and cultural narratives. Where the Things Go (Bookworm Library) is an installation proposal functioning as an outdoor book composter consisting of bookcases like structures placed in the forest and filled with books, that deteriorate and compost over time.
