“The wall and the book” – Interactive wall at Literata 2012

Interactive work at the Literata Fair (Literature Festival): “ O muro e os Livros”

In this interactive wall a column of books at the bottom of the wall expels words and letters. The most frequent words in 5 texts of the literary work of the writer Fernando Sabino are projected, simulating a physical behaviour.

A pack of books hanging from above by a rope suggest new book titles. According my parents, this packaging was as common way to take books to school, when there were no backpacks in Brazil. If someone touches these books (Fernando Sabino’s works), it suggests some words and letters. Sometimes it suggests a title of Fernando Sabino’s books.
