Passing Notes

Passing Notes aims to reflect on and strengthen our connection to books through an ongoing art installation that lets past, present, and future readers communicate by passing notes in library books.

It explores the following questions;

What interests do we share?

How does it feel to know that we have shared interests?

How does it feel when I reach out to you?

How does it feel when you reach out to me?

Do books have a memory?

Are we part of that memory?
