The City of Unimaginable Subjects
Each library draws upon the Grey Matter down below, the work of the library being to sustain its Subject through constant alteration and renewal. The work of the library has resonances in the body of Grey Matter, for every item produced within the library must eventually make its way into the depository below.
The City of Unimaginable Subjects aims to unfurl the implicated baroque of the Idea of the British Library. It stages, not two, broadly defined Subject libraries but an Infrastructure of Unimaginable Subjects. In contrast to the Grey Matter of the basement down below, each of the Unimaginable Subjects appears as a discrete body of soft colour. The Unimaginable Subjects hover, suspended above the shadowy depths, each one producing and reproducing itself by delving into the subterranean depository of information. Reciprocally, the Unimaginable Subjects contribute to the sustenance of the depository below in the manner of the occasional sedimentation of a work.
