SMELLING THE BOOKS
2010-2013

Performance where I attempted to smell every book in the Museum of Modern Art Library collection. I began with the first book in the Library of Congress Classification System: AC5.S4 1934 Sermons by Artists. I continued to smell, hoping to reach the last book: ZN3.R45 Bibliography of the History of Art.
