A House of Books


Matej Kren built a folly, entirely out of books, in the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna. Named "Scanner," the installation is designed to create a destabilizing individual experience.

The narrow inside space, multiplied and complicated by mirrors, evoke a sensation of sublime terror, an alteration referring to a puzzling infinity itself created to destabilize conventional spatial habits. Mirrors become an instrument to create illusion and, at the same time, to unmask it. Since the public can easily see themselves reflected in a false infinite – thus discovering the illusion – the problem becomes the latency of perception.

It is also like totally awesome.
