 __Inside the book, an ever-changing spectacle unfolds__ is a silent, script presented as a continuous loop on an autocue, typically used for political speeches and live presentations. It develops research from __Another way of reading__ (2014), a residency at Swiss Cottage Library, a Grade II listed building designed by Sir Basil Spence in 1964. The script functions as a speculative screenplay for a film, in which characters - a Witness, Alchemists, Geologists, Scribes, Readers, and Prophets - propose various forms of knowledge though which to re-imagine the library building, as a book to be read. __Inside the book, an ever-changing spectacle unfolds__ is a silent, script presented as a continuous loop on an autocue, typically used for political speeches and live presentations.
