REVELATION / BIG BANG
Lia Kroon & Angie Abbink
Every library should include at least three universal texts: a dictionary, an atlas and a bible (or other religious book). The bible of space is the second part of a triptych and was finished exactly 19 years after the first manuscript; the dictionary of space, #0020. Each part of this piece, each number, material, date, measurement and ratio has a symbolic meaning. The opening of the manuscript exactly 10 years after 9-11 gives rise to a literal space and opens the way for many interpretations.
