Enjoying these folded book sculptures by photographer Cara Barer.

With the discarded books that I have acquired, I am attempting to blur the line between objects, sculpture, and photography. This project has become a journey that continues to evolve. […] No important books have been injured during the making of any of these photographs.

Inversion House

December 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

In 2005 Art League Houston had two decaying studio houses that were soon to be replaced by a new building. Prior to demolition the two homes were given to sculptors Dan Havel and Dean Ruck who proceeded to convert them into a giant vortex of maximum, unadulterated awesomeness.

Havel and Ruck created a large funnel-like vortex beginning from the west wall adjacent to Montrose Blvd. The exterior skin of the houses was peeled off and used to create the narrowing spiral as it progressed eastward through the small central hallway connecting the two buildings and exiting through a small hole into an adjacent courtyard.

Ecstasy is an enormous sculpture by artists Karen Cusolito and Dan Das Mann that’s been on display since February on Patricia’s Green in San Francisco. If you’re lucky enough to be in the area, this is your last chance to see it as the piece will be removed at the end of the week. Many more wonderful photos via Thomas Hawk.

Le Creative Sweatshop

New work from Paris-based Le Creative Sweatshop that does things the old fashioned way using paper, glue, sweat, blood, and probably some tears. I also really, really love this cover for Mamz’hell. Even more stuff over on Behance.

Peter Wegner

I was originally going to post a series of Peter Wegner‘s Buildings made of Sky as seen over on Booooooom, but after digging through his portfolio for a while I decided to share just about everything else. Raised in North Dakota, Peter Wegner graduated from Yale and now works out of Berkeley, California. His works are part of the permanent collections at the Guggenheim and MoMa in New York, among others.

Book Sculptures by Ann Hamilton

December 16, 2010

Ann Hamilton works in a wide variety of mediums including interactive audio and sensory works, photography, and elaborate large-scale installations. When looking through her body of art that spans more than 20 years (Google around, much if it isn’t on her site), her book sculptures really got my attention.
