The book catalogues items from PSWAR’s temporary library, a multimedia installation comprised of objects that were personally or professionally inspiring to 94 people from various backgrounds. It’s part of PSWAR’s research on “understanding beauty not in terms of an object’s internal quality but in terms of its effect on the beholder.”

Here’s the original Hirschhorn interview, conducted in October 2006 inside his Cavemanman, a cave in the Walker galleries constructed from cardboard, packing tape, aluminum foil, and other materials.
