図書の話。

the archive series


ここ数日多数の海外サイトにおきましてこちらの『the archive series』 by david garcia studio, が取り上げられていました。が、私はどうも”作品として図書をこういうネタで扱うのはどうなのか?”という疑問点がぬぐえず敬遠してました。そこにきて信頼度ナンバーワンサイトの"designboom"までもノッてきたので、逆に言ってみようかと。 
 皆さんは大切な本って何冊お持ちですか?多分10や20じゃないんじゃないでしょうか。自分に価値のある知識や情報をくれた”大切な本”をこんな風↑に扱わないよなぁ~と思って。 いえもちろんこの作品の意図するところが別にある(公的図書として)のは分かりますが、『図書を扱う作品』としてそのポリシーは無視できないんじゃないかな?という疑問をプレゼント フォーユーしたい。

以下 designboom よりクリッピング↓↓


david garcia studio: the archive series

the archive series by david garcia studio, denmark is a collection of pieces that investigate space and books and the traditional relationships that humans have to books.
the archive series

archive I
is a weight balance library, the readers chair is elevated in proportion to the amount of books in the shelves.

archive II
is a circular library for the nomad book collector, allowing the user to step inside, and walk away with half a ton of books.

the archive series

archive III
is a censored book stand, the books close suddenly if anyone approaches the reading stand.

archive IV
challenges space and weight, by hanging from the ceiling. a wooden cylinder, 3 meter in diameter and 3.5 meter high, suspended from above, serves as a sitting area and as an archive for books and music in its inside. the visitor encounters a quiet space for conversation, and in the centre a rope ladder takes the curious to a level above, a micro lounge room, where one can look out into the crowd. from the outside, the introvert character of the structure hides the human body, only revealing feet at floor level, and the heads of visitors that climb to the top.

the archive series

'private collections have existed for centuries, but when this is added to nomadic behaviour,curious contradictions arise; this is the area studied by archive II. how can an individual travel with it’s own library, given that books are so heavy? this is something we can all relate to when moving house. archive ii is a nomadic library, a transport system and an intimate space. inspired by ancient travelling libraries from the far east, which visited courts and cities, archive ii transforms this into a personal space, where walking and reading coexist as refuge and transport.'

the archive series

as a child, I was introduced to an old friend of the family. I have never met anyone who has read so many books, could remember so many sources or quote so many authors as he could.
many years later, while studying at university, I would often call him for suggestions with
bibliography regarding the most varied subjects. we would always meet in a café or a park,
and my curiosity grew with time. what was his library like? I imagined him having endless rooms filled with books. finally, one day, I convinced him to meet at his house, and to my deep disappointment, there were no books to be seen. my impatience took over and I asked him where he kept all his books? 'i only own the book i read at the moment' he answered. 'when I finish them, I go for a walk, pick a stranger from the crowd, and give the book away.'DG
