Zabriskie Point

Proposed identity for displaying archival books from the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library and Haas Arts Library.

Both libraries require books and papers to be propped in two angled blocks while in the reading room. These blocks require readers to see rare books at an angled, distorted perspective. Books cannot lay flat as they would outside the archive. These photographs were captured from the angles of the book blocks, attempting to re-capture the dimensionality of the original object within a constrained context.

The layered collages not only create a false depth, but also suggest movement, as if these prints were stills of valuable books exploding, rotating, and falling in mid-air.
