In this week’s art experience I experienced library and bookstore different than what it actually is. At first I was kinda confused because we were thinking that we are wasting space by sitting down reading a book. I believe that words and pictures do help explain what went on while we did the exercise Turning Pages because people were looking at us weird. I wouldn’t say that the style of the work doesn’t mean a lot because everyone has their own meaning. The only other way to share this experience is maybe announce it more around school for other people to join in on the movement of Turning Pages.
When we were told we couldn’t take pictures in the library, I understood because it was supposed to be quite time while reading books but somehow I got a picture in without nobody noticing . The experience I got from both the bookstore and the library were sort of the same. People may disagree with me but I think both places are using the area wise enough until all the chairs in the library waiting for computer to open up. The people that set up the bookstore and the library did it on purpose because they are looking in the future of supply and demand. I found out crazy how much the library has change because my parents use to tell me the library was full of books and only books, now-a-day it’s mostly filled up with laptops or just table so students can place their devices on there. Also the bookstore is considered a bookstore because they sell textbooks. At the moment there is not much book to sell because classes are almost over. So why is it called a bookstore if they have more object then books? I also found it crazy how we almost got kicked out of the library for reading a book lol. Overall, this experience was different because people were not use to it, I could tell from their face expressions.
