Books transformed into visual art

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? 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!

Silhouette Masterpiece Theatre Artist Brian Dettmer Carves Old Books into Intricate Narrative Sculptures Brian Dettmer – Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World Most of Dettmer’s focus is on books, favoring out of date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books and dictionaries. He begins carving away arbitrarily at the pages, letting the images reveal themselves as he moves through his process. He seals the edges of the books to ensure precision, which also transforms the splayed edges to look like a smooth and sanded piece of wood. Carefully extracting bits and pieces, he creates a narrative within the books’ contents, revealing selected sentences and images. The resulting beautiful sculptures completely reinterpret the original intention of each book. Dettmer’s messages range from narrative to political, with spiral sculptures of butterflies from a lepidoptery journal, or a scene of layered illustrated animals from a children’s book. Dettmer exhibits his sculptures in galleries and museums throughout North America and Europe, breathing new life into media that our fast-paced society has outgrown. + Brian Dettmer
