Some of my fondest memories from my childhood have been in libraries. Libraries are quite magical places, simultaneously silent and yet have so much to say. It is a place for introspection and exploration.
My time spent in the ICI library reminds me of the times I spent in libraries as a child. Although there is not enough time to thoroughly read each book, it is always a pleasure to encounter each book like meeting a new person. Books are such special multi-dimensional objects in that way and always seem to have sentimental value.
It is has been pleasurable to organize the many books kept in the ICI library and explore the collections. This library definitely has a character of its own and expresses the multi-dimensionality of books themselves. From the bookmaking shelf to the visuality shelf, this library is odd, and personalized but also deep.
There is a simple joy in being with a book.
