Caverns Carved Into Books

Artist Guy Laramee (previously) carves the intricate, some might even say mysterious, caverns into volumes of books. Whatever mysteries these caverns might hold, we’re just happy there seems to be a light at the end of every tunnel. For his style, and even for a bit of inspiration, Laramee looks back to the literary classic “Journey to the Center of the Earth.”

As the artist says in his statement, “Like in Jules Verne’s “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, we seem to be chained to this quest. We “have to” know what lies inside things. But in doing so, we bury ourselves in the “about-ness” of our productions – language, function, etc- all things “about” other things.”
