Gallery: Scribe’s House: A Life-Size Apartment Made From Reams of Recyc...

Always on the lookout for awesome art projects made of recycled materials, we were gobsmacked to come across Pablo Lehmann's Scribe's House. The renowned artist from Argentina has torn thousands of pages from old textbooks to create a life-size apartment full of words. The culmination of two years work, this magnificent installation will be on display at Art Basel Miami the 6-9 December, 2012.

Lehmann’s nostalgic ‘apartment’ features a bathtub, curtains, a desk and bed and even little windows, all of which are made of reams and reams of paper. Using only recycled materials, the Argentinian cutout master has transferred his love of literature into a life size apartment full of words.

And if you can’t make it to Art Basel Miami, a book of images of this extraordinary exhibit is available through Anthropologie. But we have to warn you, at a whopping $2300, it doesn’t come cheap.
