 The ever-growing Libarynth is almost exactly what its name implies – a hybrid between a library and a labyrinth, a maze of pages in various stages of completion. It is a deeply intertwingled collection of documents, notes and [[randomness]] - many of which are related to [[start?​do=search&​id=foam|FoAM]],​ a network of transdisciplinary labs at the intersection of art, science, nature and everyday life. The ever-growing Libarynth is almost exactly what its name implies – a hybrid between a library and a labyrinth, a maze of pages in various stages of completion.

 For some the Libarynth can be overwhelming,​ so we advise caution when first treading over its threshold. Once comfortable within the overgrown wilderness, you are very welcome to contribute: by starting new topics, editing existing pages, or making new connections into or out of the Libarynth itself, beyond its porous edges. For some the Libarynth can be overwhelming,​ so we advise caution when first treading over its threshold.
