Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed.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
Chan Hwee Chong Makes Spiral Illustrations with a Single Line In one of the most impressive advertising ideas I have ever seen, Singapore-based art director and designer Chan Hwee Chong uses a single long line to create spiral recreations of famous artworks. In an inspired advertising campaign for Faber-Castell, designer Chan Hwee Chong demonstrates his unbelievable talent by creating spiral illustrations inspired by some of the most popular masterpieces in history. Using the above mentioned company’s pens, he starts with a blank canvas, and by drawing a continuous line in a spiral he somehow manages to make detailed reproductions of the famous works of art. via Neatorama Reddit Stumble
Paper Cuts Izziyana Suhaimi We’ve been seeing a lot of embroidered art as of late but I must say that so far, I’ve been most impressed by Singaporean artist Izziyana Suhaimi‘s work. I can’t get over how skillfully she is able […] A Due Colore I still can’t get over how Alberto Seveso can make something as simple as ink in water look so captivating. Books transformed into visual art Origami artists have been transforming paper into varied, visually striking works of art since centuries. However, an entirely different wagon of artists has stretched it across the paper and is creating the same magic with books. Had these books not been morphed into unusual artworks, you might have seen them bedecking some landfill, a ditch or a waste-bin. Who knows? Anyhow, after passing through some skilled hands, they have gotten more appealing than they were ever. Anagram Bookshop (Prague) promotional images from Kaspen deserve a glance for sure. Known as Robert The, the Kingston-based artist outshines all. Brian Dettemer is one of the masters of this weirdly green art. Casey Curran etches his art on books with a scissor. UK artist S. Lucille Moroni works with 19th century church books and missals to create art. Folded books by Denise Kiggan are just incredible!
A Father Who Creatively Captures His Kids (20 photos) If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters. Sure, his children are adorably cute in their own right, but that's not what makes his photos so interesting. I was able to get in touch with Jason to ask him a few questions. Q: How did you get into photography? Q: How do you come up with such creative photos of your daughters? Q: How has being on Flickr helped you with your business? Q: Any inspirational stories you'd like to share? Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring photographers? Q: Any quotes you live by? Thanks for the interview, Jason, and for letting us share in your fatherhood experience. Jason Lee's website
