Differential Spaces


Book, 5.5" × 8.5"


Spring 2004

“New York Places & Pleasures” by Kate Simon, published in 1959, is considered among the best guidebooks ever written about New York City. Today, much of the information is outdated. Strips of artist’s tape are applied to the entries which no longer exist, leaving the concealed letters still barely legible. Just as voids within an urban context are the moments based upon which the city defines itself, the voids created through use of the tape stand in reception of change by the reader, who may use them to add information or personal observations. Here, design is parasitic—requiring a host to unfold its potential on both a functional and formal level. The book is a vessel, offering a framework within which change can occur.
