Commonplace Books, 2018

An asynchronously published book and installation based on the research of Z33's Studio Time, in collaboration with Commonplace Studio and Jesse Howard.

"Commonplace Books" is an installation consisting of a series 'cabinets of wonder' and notebooks that are continuously filled with articles by custom drawing machines. 
Just like the objects in the cabinets, the texts and diagrams drawn into the notebooks are compiling a body of knowledge related to a single theme.
