Encouraging Entropy

Way back on August 27, 2010, we posted a story on a marvelous bibliographic installation in the woods of Quebec, Canada titled Jardin de la Connaissance. This joint project by artist Rodney Latourelle and landscape architects 100 Landschaftsarchitektur involved stacked walls, rooms, seating and carpets of books in a forest clearing.

As you would expect, nature took its course and decay set in. But recently, the artists have started to help nature along by cultivating additional colorful fungi and moss on the books. I can’t wait to see what it will look like in another two years.
