Amazing Carved Landscapes in Books


For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall, where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures.

A bit from the artist himself:

So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.

If you’d like to see more of Guy Laramee’s work, his next show will be April 5-29, 2012 at the Galerie d’Art d’Outremont in Montreal.

Secret Compartment Table


The Kai Table designed by Naoki Hirakoso and Takmitsu Kitahara is all about surprises, as it’s constructed almost entirely of secret compartments. From sliding drawers and hinged cupboards, to a number of shifting panels, the entire piece is built like an elaborate wooden puzzle.
