What

Eynesbury Senior College Students in collaboration with Bonnin Creative (artists and sister duo, Alice and Lucy Bonnin) will be installing an temporary artwork to celebrate Book Week. This ‘pop up’ art can be found next to Eynesbury College Campus on the corner of Franklin and Morialta Street in the CBD from Sunday 23 – Friday 28 August.

They say “When you open a book, you open a new world,” said Artist Lucy Bonnin.

“Books have been here for centuries, without them, today’s human knowledge of our past, ancestors, culture and civilization would have been impossible.”

“Have you imagined what would have happened if Isaac Newton did not document his study or gravity, or if Socrates and Plato had not written about their philosophies, or if Galileo had not documented his theories ?”

“Not to mention the classic books that inspired your childhood, a good fiction which helped you escape reality and even inspired you.”

Books touch the lives of almost everyone in some way and students hope the artwork will inspire and bring a smile to all who walk past.
