Book Fort

Quoted from MAMbo, Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna

Throughout his career, Matej Krén, among the most important Slovakian contemporary artists, has focused mainly on the means of elaboration and transmission of knowledge, establishing suggestive links between their historical and ideological relativity and the experimentation with many forms of optical and perceptual illusion.

Chosen because of their nature as seat of knowledge, as symbols of intrinsically human free thought, books are here “used” as raw materials for an artistic process existing and communicating on many distinct levels.

Click on the link and see how big this thing is. Perhaps we will see something like this in iPads in the next 10 years. Hopefully we'll still have books by then.
