• Sculpture Made From 5000 Books
  • Posted 33 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 8180 Views
  • Spanish artist Alicia Martin has created a sculpture in Madrid which depicts a cascade of books streaming from the Casa de America. Made from over 5000 publications, the sculpture "gives life to previously inanimate objects," this is furthered by the fact that pages from the books can be lost and blown around in the wind. So far Martin has created three of these site-specific installations, which she calls Biografias, and the work she exhibits in galleries also revolves around books.
