Leeds College of Art: Library Interventions, 2016.

Rob Lycett will catalogue the library as a collection of text fragments gathered from micro readings of the books (a reading ‘dérive’), thus creating a database of language.

Chance operations and an ordered typographic/poetic structure will reassemble snapshots of the library in the form of a collection of unique print-on-demand paperback books (each containing 1000 five-line verse), which will then sit on the library shelves in indeterminate places (Dewey decimal numbers will be allocated to each book).
