The Flybrary
by: Christina Sporrong
from: Taos, NM
year: 2019

The Flybrary is an extraordinary library within an enormous human head, partially cut open at the top allowing a flock of illuminated birds to emerge. Within the head are several levels of catwalks to climb and nooks and crannies to sit in and enjoy the selection of books. The eyes and mouth are portholes to the outside world. Up above, the open ceiling holds a large chandelier radiating soft light within. It’s a dreamy, transformative space providing an intimate and surreal refuge for contemplation, written wisdom and freedom of thought.
