Alphabetized Bible

Alphabetized Bible” is a clever re-conceptualization by Tauba Auerbach of the King James Bible that “investigates the idea that any piece of writing, no matter its intellectual weight, is nothing more than a collection of letters.” The artist deconstructs the characters of the bible and prioritizes them in alphabetical order. She explains:

The intention of my work is to formally and conceptually break language down into its tiniest essential units, and apply the unique properties of the system to the system itself, subjecting it to its own idiosyncrasies and inconsistencies in remarkable patterns.
