Information Trees: Taxonomies

Card, paper, 30 x 26 x 16 cm, 2018

A site-specific work that combines paper cut trees with index cards from the library’s catalogue system. The tree form echoes the hierarchical nature of taxonomical modes of classification while the stack of cards reflects a threaded link through history.
