Apart from the occasional excursion out to discover big things, I’ve been at home working on the exhibition that is to be the culmination of my Biblioburbia blog. For Biblioburbia I made journeys to suburban Sydney libraries and wrote about my discoveries in them, and for the exhibition I’m making a map of the project.
It’s satisfying to make the blog into another form. I have printed out the entire Biblioburbia blog, which is now sitting on my desk, an inch of A4 paper. Often it works the other way round: something is summarised or documented in a blog, rather than the blog being transformed into something new. For the exact details of my mapmaking you will have to wait and see, although I can tell you I will be making a print on the Big Fag Press this weekend.
The exhibition is at First Draft gallery, opening on Wednesday 14th March, 6-8pm. It runs until the 1st April.
