A New Way to Read?

Man, you can’t do this with a blog. Brian Dettmer creates these works out of old books, and other things. Galleries that have exhibited his work may be found here and here. He has this to say about his method:

“I always think of the books content and how it relates to my process. For example, when I work with an anatomy book, I think of the book as a body and of my process as a dissection; when I work with a science or anthropology book, I think about excavation: if its a history book I think about memory and the way history is told and the way it can be redefined.”

The rest of the interview may be found at the blog what to wear during an orange alert. Pardon the silly picture on the sidebar.
