Not Dead Yet

I continue to be amazed by the endlessly imaginative ways in which book artist Brian Dettmer transforms discarded books. His latest series Dodo, Data, Dada plays with the concept of the changing place of the printed book in our culture. Dettmer says, “The physical book no longer has the monopoly and authority it once had. They now lie like furniture, hidden in basement boxes, or displayed on a shelf to signify intellect while they collect dust”.
