The Library of Free Objects is a series of printed books and models. These books and objects are encyclopedias of 3d models, sourced from creative commons online repositories. Acting both as printed reference material and as a survey of forms, the free objects books point to underlying assumptions about what a perfect object is. Presented without modification or commentary beyond the names of the original creators, the library preserves the spareness of digital 3d spaces while flattening the models into images. With the examples ranging in subject from 'house' to 'rock' to 'gun', it is an an attempted collection of every free-to-use 3d model named 'house', 'rock', or 'gun' available.
All books are 8.5" x 5", softcover, grayscale, and range from 140 to 270 pages.
(Some have ‘messy’ margins- a misprinted line of white on the top or bottom of the page.)
