Book Art

by 15 enero 2012

En esta época de Kindles e iPads, bueno es buscar otra función a ese extraño objeto decorativo lleno de papel, letras y con suerte algún bonito dibujo en la portada. Bromas a parte, es interesante ver lo que piensan del futuro de los libros artistas que los transforma para darles ese valor extra que uno electrónico nunca podrá tener.

Books are in a conflicted state. Should they still exist in a digital era? Will they all be replaced by Kindles and Nooks? These questions dominate the discussion of books in our time. A select group of artists, who use books as their medium, engage this discussion from another angle. From pop culture pop-ups, to surreal sculptural stories, to reformations of antique sacred texts, these creators re-envision what the experience of a book can be. At times playful, and other times profound, this episode explores the boundaries of one of the most important human creations.
