An Explosion of Colour The UK calls it “Colour” whilst Americans call it “Color” but regardless of its spelling, the meaning of the word holds just as much passion and power within. Color is the most dominating feature around the globe, and without it, many significant emotions, signals and atmospheres would be lost. Each autumn trees display their leaves in a breathtaking palette, days later the Colour is gone. The same happens in the deep blue of an October sky or the warm orange of a winter fire, it is an impossible Colour to hold. Perhaps the ephemeral behaviour of natures Colour is what motivated humans to search out ways to posses it, enabling us to modify our lives into a more colourful one.

Body Temple Break Stuff! High-speed photographs by Alan Sailer . Photos © Alan Sailer Link via Bumbumbum The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) 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 Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed.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. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here. Brian Dettmer's website
