Olafur Eliasson

Moving away slightly from the subject of repurposed art, Olafur Eliasson made her own hand-bound book by laser-cutting each page to make these highly realistic book "submerged" book sculptures.  It is really fascinating how realistic it can look when each page is cut with that degree of accuracy.  The plain white paper also makes the book look more like a canvas, and less like the art is covering up something that was already there.  It fills the canvas with negative space and draws your attention to the shadows inside the sculpture.
