Encyclopedia, 2017

A plaster cast of a book on a pedestal.

An encyclopedia contains what is considered true, factual information, or “complete knowledge” in the particular time and place. How do we know what we know? How is our knowledge constructed and justified? The work invites for epistemological doubt and reflection on scientific knowledge. A book becomes an object, not a text. The aim of presenting an unreadable book is to question the knowledge production. An empty book, a “tabula rasa” invites anyone to imagine their own encyclopedia, demonstrating relativity of knowledge.
