Britannica Atlas (Altered Book) by Shannon Newby
“The last few centuries have seen an incredible transformation in the interpretation and usage of the book: from prized possession, to transmitter of information, to art object, to a bulky item often set aside in favor of a digital equivalent. In this body of work entitled “By Its Cover,” I have dismantled and reconfigured books to reflect on the past, present and future history of the written word and its relationship to culture, individuals and society as a whole.”

These might look like antique books, but they’re actually salvaged bricks that have been painted to look like they belong in an old library. The faux literature is the brilliant work of Daryl Fitzgerald, who transforms the bricks by stenciling them on both sides with titles of literary classics.

3D String sculptures by Hong Sung Chul
South Korean artist Hong Sung Chul creates three-dimensional string sculptures where images of people are printed across hundreds of elastic strings. This series entitled String Mirrors. Using various media and modern technology, prompts interaction and performance from his viewers. Hong initiates a dialogue with and between viewers, instilling the sense of community prised in Korean culture. These strings are staggered in his works and interlace to reveal a final representation – one of support or loneliness.
