Molly Springfield, an artist and Triple Canopy contributor, discusses Paul Otlet's Mundaneum and her own work: text-based drawings and installations that reveal visionary moments in the history of how we experience, organize, and reproduce information. Springfield combines a labor-intensive drawing practice with an investigation of problems related to reproduction and originality, seeing and reading, technology and labor. Her most recent project is a translation of the first chapter of Proust's In Search of Lost Time in the form of drawings of photocopies of every existing English translation of the novel.
- Molly Springfield is an artist living in Washington, DC. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington.
