Artist Cara Barer folds, creases, twists and turns old books and manuals to transform them into these wonderful settings that are reminiscent of some patterns we’re quite used to see. The arrangement of paper and books adds beautifully to the visual goodness.
This is lovely, and totally worth the academy award it received. The film was made by Moonbot Studios.
How cool are these prints of objects reading books! Marc Johns has quite a lovely set there.
We could stack books into big piles, but making them a suitable candidate for construction would require the genius of Matej Kren. The artist stacked thousands of books, using them as bricks to create a structure that could pass off as a building. It isn’t some half-assed “building” either, this structure includes 30 feet high ceilings, spacious rooms, and arched pathways; all made with the wisdom of books.
We don’t quite approve of this, but seeing that reading has become something of a dying art, a lot of people are content in describing the joys of a book to the simple and unintelligent blah blah blah. This project by Gogelmogel is a book, with the only content in it being the word “blah” and the title of “Blah blah blah.”
What once used to be a humble 1979 Ford Falcon, is now a tank. And tank way more powerful than any of those combat vehicles, if you look at it with a philosophical eye. There isn’t much left of the fusion after the addition of the welded frame.
Being a spy and living the James Bond life requires some dedication, like reading a book on spy stuff. The book touches a number of topics, ranging from the relatively simple eavesdropping to more “advanced” stuff like code breaking, cyber warfare and spreading misinformation. Costs ~$8.
The creator of this fantastic bath tub, Vanessa Mancini calls it the bath of knowledge. And we’re inclined to agree, primarily because of the generous amount of books covering the tubs boundaries. While that collection would certainly not make a bathtub actually usable, Vanessa managed to get it done by fitting in the deconstructed books tightly together and sealing them over a metal frame.
