I took one look at these pictures and went squee!
I did, I said squee when I saw this picture. I turned into a 9 year-old. My eyes went wide with wonder and I began to salivate. Look at all those books.
I love book art. Some artists really go way out there – Alicia Martin certainly did.
“The Spain-based artist’s sculptural installation at Casa de America, Madrid depicts a cavalcade of books streaming out of the side of a building. The whirlwind of literature defies gravity and draws attention with its grandeur size. There have been three site-specific installations, thus far, of the massive sculptural works in this series known as Biografias, translated as Biographies, that each feature approximately 5,000 books sprawled out around and atop one another.”
