This investigation and subsequent intervention in the Clemson University Cooper Library pays homage to the Process of Nina Katchadourian’s Sorted Books project. Her method involved sorting through a collection of books, picking out particular titles, and eventually arranging The books into groups so that the titles could be read in sequence, from top to bottom.

7 students from Professor David Detrich’s Advanced Sculpture class have located their version of Sorted Books throughout the library complex.
