A sculpture made with the echoes of accidents, mishaps and slips. An inventory of strange events that tells the stories of things that went wrong.
Accident Book is an intervention in eight Accident and Emergency wards across London and Cambridge. From June 2009 onwards, people waiting for treatment, prognoses or friends, began to discover books lying amongst the copies of old magazines. The 500 copies of Accident Book distributed through these eight hospitals are each individually numbered and the finders of these books are encouraged to take them home but also to register here.
Over time this site will slowly become an expanding inventory of the momentous or small events that have disrupted the equilibrium of everyday lives.
