This object belongs to my big installation built from discarded books. The artifacts in this show (towers, spirals, arches, trees, little houses, etc.) show the rich possibilities offered by the book as a building material. Whatever we produce from books, the viewer instantly perceives the artifacts as repositories of the meanings and symbols bound up with the very nature of books. Thus, a spiral tower is transformed into a stairway to knowledge; an arch, into a cathedral portal; a house, into a temple of science; and a book tree reminds us of the raw material from which the book paper is ordinarily manufactured. The object is quite firm and can be easily shipped. Price doesn't include shipping.
