Brian Dettmer

Brian Dettmer is a sculptor who has a specialization in using books as his medium for sculpting. His techniques are really interesting and he has a large variety of different book alterations. He takes a book and uses the title to create a piece related to the title within the book itself. I really got a lot of inspiration from looking at his pieces and you should google him and search for some of his stuff. His utilization of space within the sculptures is magnificent and you really get a sense of the depth within the piece which has a profound effect when viewing his pieces.
This is one of the pieces where he really utilized the title of the book with the thought process of creating the piece. He created the anatomy of a human skull inside a textbook on anatomy. All of his work is inspiring and contains plenty of wonderful idea we could use for our project.
