Librarianing iz Kewl
From We Make Money Not Art via MakeBlog, this is really damn cool:
Non-fiction books checked out and returned at the Seattle Central Library amount to approximately 37000 items per day. From now on, the circulation of books will float in color-coded streams across six big plasma screens located on a glass wall behind the librarians’ main information desk.
All participants to Making Visible the Invisible are anonymous. Whatever is in circulation will be noted, but not the person who put it there.
George Legrady's project is the last major piece of art commissioned for the Rem Koolhaas-designed library.
