Books instalations

Some of you might know Matej Kren, the artist famous in my part of world for his book instalation The passage and many more art creations with books.
Here is not so great shot of the art instalation (can´t believe there are no better pictures of it on the internet..):

and some pics from my mobile:


I visit this instalation time to time and always find it amazing. The floor and ceiling except the stripe you are stepping on are actually mirrors, so it feels like you can fall to and endless canyon from books! Definitely worth to visit when you happen to be in Bratislava, and because it is an permanent instalation, it will probably be here for a long time.
He also has some more instalations of this kind, called Book cell and Scanner, and does "stone gardens" made from books - he makes stones from book paper, but I haven´t seen any of these yet.

But recently I came across another book instalations, reading this blog.
These are made by Alycia Martin, a spanish artist, and look like this:

That is quite amazing too. I just wonder how long this kind of art lasts in heavy rain and bad weather...

This first shot from gallery is my favorite, because it is clean and ... I just like it.

It is called Falling.
Well, it is pretty amazing what you can do with books. If you do not feel like reading any, you can try some different use for it!
