Within a slide viewer, a small, semi-transparent LCD screen is backlit by a filament lightbulb. To the right of the magnified screen is a magnifying loop which exposes the video player’s circuit board and is illuminated by an LED lightbulb. The video is a 12 minute loop of decaying books that is abstracted by the close camera work and mimics the landscape of ancient architectural ruins.
