Noriko Ambe at the Albright-Knox


Although many of the assignments I have to do for my MLS degree are dull, simplistic activities, some of the larger projects involve researching things I’m actually interested in. For example, for one of my courses my partner and I are working on a virtual archive of Foursquare that will include readings, facsimiles of the back issues, and a video exploration of the way the issues unfold. And two of the projects I’m working on involve studying how artists’ books are cataloged and archived (Johanna Drucker has been working on this issue). So I was excited tonight when I went to the Albright Knox and saw the altered books of Noriko Ambe. Recommended viewing for those in the area.
