Burn after reading

If you have a little time over...

ANTAGONISTIC BOOKS (by Zack Gage) is a set of two books and instructions for how to build them. ANTAGONISTIC BOOKS turns the emotions and actions surrounding the banning of books into physical objects that undermine the user.

Danger reenacts what has historically been done to dangerous literature, self-immolating when opened.

Curiosity represents the notion that many book-banners feel, that the true danger of literature is that once you've opened a book you have been forever changed and can never go back. Emulating this notion, Curiosity can never be closed. Once opened, it is locked in an open position forever.


I found it kind of interesting, especially since I was listening to Songs: Ohia when looking at the first book burning.

I have to be honest, I don't like the 2nd video.
