Books organized by color in There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World by Chris Cobb. Very cool to see the flow of the colors.
This reminds me of this short story I’ve been working on that takes place in a book store. I’m getting some inspiration here…
Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color. The project is titled There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. They were arranged by hand over a 10 hour period, and he enlisted the help of 16 volunteers. Such beautiful results, they transformed the bookshop overnight.
I know Chris :) Fun to stumble across his work online.
This piece also makes me think of changing views of the nature of human beings, from a mythic and spiritual understanding to a modern and materialistic worldview.
