“page 22 (Half Folded Library)” is a site-specific installation in a public library. I folded all the p.22 of half of the entire books in a library (as shown above). I pretended reading a book. At the same time, I folded slinkingly on a small corner of p.22 at that book. I folded one book, skipped one book, and then folded another book until I folded half of the entire collections in that library. There have 188 bookshelves and almost 31000 books in the library. Therefore, 15500 books were folded. I worked on and off in the library from 2008-3-6 to 2008-6-24. Actual working days are almost 1 month. The media of this art piece is a library. If audiences want to see the artwork, they need to go inside the library or borrow the books out.
