Sonata 27




This year the Toronto Public Library approached a few architectural practices to provide a piece of artwork for their Booklovers Ball. The artwork would be auctioned. The key to the design was that old books would be used.

The architects in the office came up with the 'Sonata 27'. It consisted of 27 plexiglass cubes. Once assembled the cubes would form 1 solid white cube. Inside each cube was a 'momento' of a book. The designs varied from cutting out individual words or weaving, stacking, burning, folding, and shredding pages and hardcovers. The final cube consisted of 27 individual stories created by the architects. The storied cubes were open to several interpretations and displays.

The artwork claimed the highest bid in the auction. We miss them......
