WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: EPHEMERAL

Is the ink is mightier than the byte?

Like many people, I split my reading between paper and e-reader. I know that the words are what matter, not the medium.  At some point, everything will decompose in our ephemeral reading rooms.

In 2010, for an installation in a forested area at the Jardin de la Connaissance in Quebec, artist Rodney LaTourelle and landscape architect Thilo Folkerts collaborated to create Garden of Cognition, a temporary garden space using approximately 40,000 discarded books stacked to form walls, benches,and carpets.

But, whether I read online or onshelf, in spite of the temporal nature of it all, the ideas remain eternal.
