nina katchadourian's 'sorted books' project transforms book titles into something along the lines of visual minimalist poetry. as she explains "the project has taken place in many different places over the years, ranging form private homes to specialized public book collections. the process is the same in every case: culling through a collection of books, pulling particular titles, and eventually grouping the books into clusters so that the titles can be read in sequence, from top to bottom." see more here. and thanks to barry for the link.
