The Scottish Library Phantom

Filed under: Uncategorized — popularkinetics @ 10:20 pm

A mystery unfolded in a series of Scottish libraries and museums this past fall when small sculptures constructed from printed pages started appearing on their shelves. Made with exquisite care, these tiny treasures started a sculptural scavenger hunt among the book collections of such institutions as the Scottish Poetry Library and the National Museum of Scotland. A cryptic note was found explaining some aspects of the project, but the name of the artist remains unknown: some mysteries are best when they persist. To follow the adventures of the Library Phantom, visit Robert Krulwich’s sciencey blog at http://www.npr.org/blogs/krulwich/2011/11/29/142910393/the-library-phantom-returns  Thanks to Sue Hoegberg for sending us this link.
