Libraries and collections are objects which yearn for order and correctness, yet always contain within them the chaos they were born from. They also yearn to grow and be duplicated. The Agitha Demark Project is an ongoing social project. Most recently performed at PS1, the project uses music as a mechanism to produce conversation. By sharing from a vast library of digitized albums people are enticed to talk with us.

[Polly Ullrich] To experience Agitha Demark Project, the viewer entered a starkly white gallery which reverberated with music. Clad in a uniform designed by his collaborator Dawn Reed, Warnick stood like a clerk behind a console and handed out sewn cloth "wrist accessories" adorned with an Agitha Demark computer logo, also made by Reed. After strapping on the bracelet, the viewer could approach the console, peruse four leather-bound books made by Warnick, and pick out one of the 1,000 crisply described compact discs for Warnick to copy. About 2,000 more titles were available for the asking.
