Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms.

sconsin Information Network for Successful Schools - WINSS home page Since fall 2000, the Data Analysis section of Wisconsin Information Network for Successful Schools (WINSS) has been an important data resource used by education stakeholders to help all students meet and exceed expectations. A wide variety of data about academic performance, attendance and behavior, staff and other school resources, and student demographics has been provided through WINSS Data Analysis tools. In Fall 2013, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) implemented a new and updated public data analysis portal called WISEdash, or Wisconsin Information System for Education Data Dashboard. At that time, WISEdash began to phase out WINSS Data Analysis (red box) with the migration of more recent years of data about WSAS, ACT, Advanced Placement Program (r) Exams, Attendance, and Demographics from WINSS Data Analysis to WISEdash. The plan is to migrate all WINSS data topics to WISEdash over time. Where is the WINSS red box?
