— ‘Biografias’ by Alicia Martin

What an incredible installation – This waterfall of approximately 5000 books ‘streams’ out of the Casa de America in Madrid.

The book structure is part of a series of sculptural works by the Spanish artist, named “Biografias”.

 

“Martin’s giant book structures give life to the inanimate objects filled with knowledge. By constructing the curving towers with a rather free and disheveled exterior, while maintaining a sturdy core, the books’ loose pages are free to blow and rustle in the wind, allowing the piece to be further animated”
