Books for the masses
This isn’t a sculpture of books pouring out of the library. In this age of technology, it seems as if libraries have lost their charm; perhaps the books felt as if they are no longer wanted or needed, and decided to all jump out the window? Of course, that’s not what happened. This is an art exhibition by Spanish artist Alicia Martin.
This book sculpture is one of many installations spread in different locations in Spain. The seemingly falling books are held together by pieces of metal and a mesh framework. The books seem as if they were caught mid-fall, and the effect of motion makes this photo look like someone was caught in some kind of a book rebellion.
