The Mission District in San Francisco has always been
a colorful place. But when artist Chris Cobb re-organized the contents
of a used book store (more than 22,000 books) — by the color of
their spines — he tweaked an already eccentric place into a dreamscape.
Walking into this funky space is like physically entering a short story
by Borges. Time stands still, and dream connections leap from the
title on one spine to the next. The juxtapositions of books remind me
of the cut and paste poetry of Brion Gysin and William Burroughs. Literally
hours pass, light shifts, and you walk back into the street, changed.
