A River of Books

An amazing art installation in Melbourne, Australia, as part of the Light in Winter event. The seasons are reversed, of course, in the southern hemisphere, so winter is just now passing into spring there. And, Melbourne is doing as New York did not long ago with their Literature vs Traffic installation. But, Melbourne's efforts overshadowed NY's; and other cities have also installed this temporary artwork. It's a stunning display, but you have to wonder if this brief, vivid statement is worth the huge effort! Hopefully, people are struck by the grandiosity of the written word spread out in such stark relief over the pavement.
