As part of an art project called There Is Nothing Wrong In This Whole Wide World, artist Chris Cobb has reorganized the inventory of the Adobe Bookshop in San Francisco. All the books are now organized by color.

"For one amazing week in November, Adobe Bookshop in San Francisco has agreed to allow its estimated 20,000 books to be reclassified by color."

 

Artist Chris Cobb has turned San Francisco's Adobe Bookshop into one big work of art called "There Is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World" by rearranging the entire shop by color. It really is quite beautiful.

i wasn't sure how she would react to her first haircut. but she warmed right up to the place--it was full of men, and they were playing good music.

There is nothing wrong in this whole wide world. I like how The Color Purple has a white spine, but lives with the purple books.

There is a page on the book which seems to have lasted longer than the website (though you can read Al Gore's essay.

 

The website does live on in the internet archive, but most people would have an easier time finding the book (even when it is shelved or in this case not shelved by color).

 

Burn Rate, a controversial chronicle ofthat era is on a shelf in the background.

On Justin's site, you can read his thoughts a few days before the photo was taken, an article from the Philly Inquirer, and what he wrote that day.

 

Also, the article from the book on the TND at Cyborganic on 59 Ramona (not far from Adobe) where he would have been if they had flown him to San Francisco.

This was an art installation (2004-2005) by Chris Cobb where about 25,000 books were reorganized by their colour at Adobe Bookshop (San Francisco).

 

This makes a point on how obvious is our usual classification by categories.

i.e. History: list of countries.. Literature: list of countries or movements..

I like the idea and I have a good visual memory, but maybe I'll scale it down to the books I own.

I found this in the green book I bought.

 

The Chronicle says, "Tiny tags with shelf and row numbers attest to Cobb's organizational skills. He printed 24,000 of them so that the books can be returned to their original places (calling all volunteers!) Dec. 12."

I bought a drawing by Chris Cobb (known most recently for rearranging the books at Adobe in color sequence for his "There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World" project) that reads:

 

This line I am giving you is not just a line. It is stronger and more powerful than any other line. It connects all people to all other people and cannot be destroyed.

This one's a bit different from the rest of the books I've finished lately—Nikki and I read this one to each other, one letter at a time. The language is old, and somewhat tricky to get through; "is" for "went" and things like that—British from the 17th Century.

 

But it was fun to read a book to my wife, and have her read one to me.
