A mad thing.

Trong G. Nguyen. Library, 2007.

I saw this and thought it was a crazy mad idea.

Each packet contains many grains of rice on which a word has been written in ink.

Each packet contains a chapter of a given book.

If you can spot a few gold grains floating around in there, that's the title of said given book.

Chapters are over laid three at a time, therefore perhaps they begin to cast shadows of the past. 


I miss those old library stamps, it's not the same as the barcode that we have now.

Found here.

You can see more here.
