Input/Output Device

Input/Output Device is a computer workstation table inspired by an explanatory diagram of computer terminal as infrastructure for the Reanimation Library's Highland Park Branch.

The Reanimation Library is a small, independent presence library open to the public in Brooklyn, NY. The library collects books for their compelling visual content and have, for some reason or another, fallen out of mainstream circulation. The books are always culled from thrift stores, stoop sales, and throw-away piles. The Library encourages the public to browse the collection, scan pages, and reanimate the images in their own creative works.

A group of artists were asked to create visual and text-based works using books collected for the library's temporary Highland Park Branch in Los Angeles at Monte Vista Projects. After a conversation with Andrew Beccone, I decided to create infrastructural pieces for the library—shelving, tables, and benches—inspired by books in the Highland Park collection.

Book Used:

Handbook of Microprocessors, Microcomputers, and Minicomputers

I also created Cortex Activities for Codex Activities, a pair of shelves for the library's collection, and a pair of benches titled Of Infinite Amounts of Random and Processes at Given Times.

All objects are on permanent loan to the Reanimation Library.
