Science and maths books, ranging from primary to academic texts, and journals were selected and donated by Oxford University Press.
A number was allocated to each book, and these were wrapped and distributed to twenty- seven artists who had been invited to respond in any way they chose.
The exhibition was held in the 03 Gallery in March 2010, and reconfigured in the public space in OUP in October .
