travelling Into your bookshelf 2009 - ongoing














2nd stop Eleonora Lupo's Bookshelf - Milan
4 - 7 Apr 2010

“Travelling into your Bookshelf” is my new touring project that creates dialogues around memories of books donated by people from all over the world. It is an ongoing project that aims not have any limits in terms of location or format. Through meeting with friends or strangers and reading their books, I attempt to establish relationships with them and learn about their cultures by exploring their memories and maintaining a two-way communication. Through my knitting process with the participants, I hopes to create a new way of reading and let the viewers re-examine the communication barriers between people nowadays.
