1. Lending Library Public Sculpture on Kickstarter

Documentary filmmaker Julia Marchesi and public artist Leon Reid IV hope to raise $13,000 on Kickstarter to install a library-themed public sculpture called “The Hundred Story House.” Above, we’ve embedded a video about the project–what do you think?

The interactive art piece will be made in the shape of a brownstone row house and located in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill Park. It will contain approximately 100 books for people to borrow based on the honor system. The funds will be used to cover materials, fabrication, transportation, installation, maintenance, removal, documentation, insurance, permit fees and awards for Kickstarter supporters.

Here’s more about the project: “The Hundred Story House is a piece of interactive public art.  It is a miniature Brooklyn brownstone whose windows open upon shelves of books (about 100 of them) which can be borrowed by the community. Situated in the Cobble Hill Park on Clinton Street, the House is a tiny lending library open to all and operating on the honor system — take-a-book, leave-a-book. This is an effort to celebrate the BOOK as a physical object, and the pleasure of holding one in your hand.  Or better yet, placing one in someone else’s.”
