The “great encyclopaedia of space written and illustrated without leaving home” is published in conjunction with the International Institute of Architecture in Vico Morcote. It is actually a very small book, consisting of a compilation of entries such as “bathtub”, “gravity” and “wall”. Just as the mystery of time is fully contained in its briefest span, a matchbox is more than big enough for the mystery of space. The two artists have developed a syntax in which words, pictures and composition interact on a single plane – on the ever so human scale of the doublepage spread of an open book.
