We are definitely in a digital age when it comes to reading books, newspapers and magazines and for those of us who have managed to acquire a lot of books through the years, here’s something that may inspire you to do something with those books instead of collecting dust on your bookshelves.
A fascinating Dutch artist by the name of Frank Halmans stacks vintage books along shelves, carving windows and doors through each to create a series of imaginary buildings and interiors in each section of volumes. The spaces he slices through stand as a metaphor and the idea of moving through something whether it be a literary passage or a physical space. Pretty nifty stuff! Aside from carving windows and doors through books he also uses other forms such as dust busters, vacuums, and such. Check out his website…..http://www.frankhalmans.nl/
I may just try this at home myself…I just need to stock up on my exacto blades.
