Incredible House Sculpture Made From Hundreds of Recycled Books by CardiffMiller

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller  created this incredible literary construction made from hundreds of recycled books turned into impromptu bricks. The spines of the books face out to form a solid shell, while the pages face into the structure to create a “library turned in on itself”. The house doesn’t feature any windows, so it’s completely shut off from any worldly distractions. Commissioned by Modern Art Oxford  and the Fruitmarket Gallery  in 2008, the project is a tangible reflection of a home filled with the imaginative worlds that books give us.
