Einstein Rainbows

Aspen Mays' "Every book" is a series of photographs that document every book about Albert Einstein available through the Illinois Collegiate Inter-Library Loan service. The books were organized by Mays according to the color spectrum to create a series of individual "rainbows" - referencing Einstein's theories about light and gravity. With these works, Mays asks how the systematic presentation of individual parts affects our understanding of the whole.
