The ephemeral library is conceived as an in-situ space constantly co-created and re-created to provide quiet areas for reflection and common areas to facilitate collaboration and group study. It is an organized collection of physical and digital information and material resources available to the visitors for reference and inquiry. As libraries range in size from a few books to several millions, the physical design of the library expresses the experience of libraries as generative systems of content for self-organized learning. The generative three-dimensional geometry is designed to interact with the visitor and encourage them to continually recreate the space with the materials and their imaginations. As with a collection of books, a collection of objects has both finite and infinite potential of conceiving new possibilities in thought through its individual integrity and cooperative interactions. Visitors are also encouraged to study the resources collected specifically for the Ephemeral Library for the VCMD Education Exhibition.
