We’ve seen a lot of artwork created from books, but not all of them have such a quirky focus on science. Aspen Mays created this unusual mini-library installation with her colorful rainbow sculpture ‘Every Book’. Paying homage to Albert Einstein‘s theories, Mays’ piece incorporates each of Einstein’s books available for lending at the Illinois Collegiate Inter-Library. May organized each book according to the color spectrum to create the rainbow formation, and then documented the sculpture through a series of photographs.
