Jury feedback summary
‘Them’ is a proposal for a polycarbonate box with a small opening - as if a wormhole, as represented in physics and in the movie Interstellar - and the sole physical connection between interior and exterior. Colorful woven elements help to establish an interior that is visually drastically different from that of the outside. The symbolic gesture is meant to transport those reading within into other mental states, worlds other than our own. Books that are read are provided by visitors - ‘them’ - and the project thus plays on the relations among strangers to share and accept books via this metaphorical time machine.
