Lacuna is a monumental, participatory art installation constructed from 50,000 books. Like a library, people can step inside Lacuna, browse its shelves, and take home books. Unlike a library, the very walls of Lacuna are created from books, which means that when people remove a book from a shelf, the structure will change and morph as new gaps in the book brickwork are exposed.  This is where the magic of Lacuna happens: Lacuna becomes a reflection of the community who interacts with it. It becomes a story told by the many individuals who step inside it and are swept away by the wonder of the written word.  Lacuna is a project commissioned by the Bay Area Book Festival and created by the FLUX Foundation. It will debut at the inaugural Bay Area Book Festival in June 2015 in downtown Berkeley, CA.
