The name of this piece-’Oh, the Farmer and the Cowman Should be Friends’. A one off piece designed for Timothy Taylor Gallery in London by designer Ron Arad. The United States make an excellent storage space for your favorite tomes. Wouldn’t it be fun to give each state a theme? For instance: western novels in Arizona, beach reads in Florida, Oprah’s book club in Illinois.
Missing from this installation- Alaska and Hawaii. They are still part of the United States aren’t they? We can understand why he might boot Alaska out of the picture (Sarah Palin, bleh!) but Hawaii is the birth place of our current President! Missing states aside, it’s still a very impressive and fun design.
