I’ve just been at the conference in honor of the 30th anniversary of the University of Sao Paulo Integrated Library System (SIBi USP). David Palmer, one of the speakers at the conference, used in his presentation a picture of a wonderful sculpture that I had never seen before, which turned out to be a public art piece at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia by Petrus Spronk entitled “Architectural Fragment”. I place a couple of pictures of it here in honor of Spronk’s 72nd birthday, which happens to be today. You can find more images here.
