Oh, how beautiful is this?!

Brian Dettmer, out of Atlanta Georgia is making quite a name for himself.  Eugene of My Modern Met calls him the book surgeon, in his piece here…

That’s because he is literally dissecting these books “with knives, tweezers, and surgical tools.”  And the results are awesome!

He doesn’t always choose to use medial books, but you have to admit that it really does go well with the whole surgical/dissection theme.  I noticed on his website, a skeleton made of old cassette tapes as well.  Those of you who read this blog often know how I love skeletons, and particularly skulls so you have to know how much I love that someone did this.

The artist statement on his website speaks of how we are loosing our physical forms of information as digital technology takes over.  I highly advise stopping over there and taking a look at more of his work.  It is beautiful.  And Brian is clearly an artist who has taken the time to master his craft.  What a fun find.
