"Built of Books" is a series of sculptures from Dutch artist Frank Halmans — houses carved out of blocks of stuck-together books.
dutch artist frank halmans explores themes of domesticity and memory through his sculptural installations.
his series 'built of books' employs vintage publications – the selected titles have no particular meaning and are not exceptional literary works –
which he arranges into stacks. lining them up along shelves, he carving windows and doors through each, creating sets of imaginary buildings
and interiors in each section of volumes. in a way these spaces which he slices through the books, stand as a metaphor and the idea of moving through something,
whether it be a literary passage, or a physical expanse.
