Jonathan Callan’s Mesmerizing Organic Book Sculptures Are Swirling Masses of Color
Posted By Helen Morgan On June 11, 2012 @ 1:00 pm In Art,gallery | No Comments
Here at Inhabitat we’ve showcased a whole host of artwork made out of books , from a rainbow spectrum book sculpture  to Cardiff/Miller’s recycled book house . But we love it when artists like Callan give the books a completely unique shape, transforming them into a different artistic material that is almost unrecognizable. Whether you think these sculptures look like the cross-section of a tree trunk or a map of a weather pattern, the organic form challenges the viewer to consider the provenance of materials like books.
