The Bedside Table
In Species of Space, George Perec uses the contents of his bedside table as a point of entry to the topography of associations of everyday objects and spatial understanding. The installation uses this model to explore boundaries between physical travels and imagined dreamscapes. The physical objects on the table correspond to the content of the website in a nonlinear narrative structure. These items become pushpins in a map of loose associations; they create moments for play and wandering in the accumulation of information.
