The Art of Noise

Maria Popova, the curator extraordinaire behind Brainpickings.org, selected an array of books to be featured at the front of the New York Public Library's gift shop. She approached Kelli Anderson — who makes astonishingly imaginative creations out of paper — to bring the collection to life. 

Kelli produced forty 3D books by cutting, gluing, and engineering paper, then developed a custom hanging truss to suspend her paper world within a display case at the library.

We documented the installation in two ways: in advance of the install to capture the dimension and texture of the paper, and also as a time lapse while the team worked through the night building the installation (down below).
