File Card Works Hidden in Books

Eyland began the ongoing installation File Card Works Hidden in Books at the Raymond Fogelman Library at 65 Fifth Avenue, New York, in 1997. The work was sponsored by the New School University (formerly the New School for Social Research). He was assisted by curator Kathleen Goncharov, who organized a reception, and Fogelman librarian Gail Persky, who gave him formal permission to do the work. He continued to hide hundreds of original drawings in Fogelman books until 2005, when the new librarian asked him to stop: "We pay people to take out what people like you put in," he said. Eyland plans to continue this work when he again gets formal permission from the Fogelman administration. The drawings below were hidden in Fogelman books in 2003.
