Wondering what is it? If I told you that these are a pack of books that have been bundled together and transformed into a piece of art, for letting them thrive with a new meaning, would you believe it? These are a few specimen from the collection of artist Brian Dettmer who with his unique skill makes sculptures, carvings and much more with books, that have lost their identity in this present world.
Instead of discarding them he takes interest in carefully scraping and cutting through the layers of books to create intricate and thought provoking structures which otherwise would have been unfathomable. The various patterns not only open up a new dimension of looking at books but reveal the depth of his artistry as well.
His artwork involves the use of exacto knives, tweezers, and other surgical tools.There’s a lot to see and experience as you glide through the complicated, chaotic yet marvelous patterns put forward by the artist. Recommend you to visit the flickr gallery and his website, called briandettmer.com.
