a landscape of books

A library is a special place; a place where people can escape from reality. Your fantasy reaches infinity. On behalf of the county of Peel and Maas, i have filled 100 meter of bookshelves with books that stand together for the municipality.

This artwork consists of 10.000 library books that form two abstract but recognizable images of the county of Peel and Maas. The colors seem to stand alone at first sight but when you look closer they work together to form a landscape. The dynamics of the colored books work the same as the population: every citizen is an individual, but all together they are the county of Peel and Maas.
