Aural Illumination

Traditional library etiquette calls for silence, or, at least that one doesn't transcend a whisper. But that only applies to more serious, academic reading. Public libraries offer a range of literature types and modes of reading. Aural Illumination propses to organize the library according to acoustic spatial types based on background noise: white, black, blue, pink, green, and brown. Furthermore, it attempts to embody that representation tectonically.
