Commonplace Books, 2018

"Commonplace Books" is an installation consisting of a series 'cabinets of wonder' and notebooks that are continuously filled with articles by custom drawing machines. 

Together with the objects in the cabinets, the texts and diagrams drawn into the notebooks are compiling a body of knowledge related to how we deal with and think about time.

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