Amazing Carved Book Landscapes
Artist Guy Laramee has a very unique and surprising take on 'culture'. According to him, instead of the ultimate knowledge being an accumulation, it is actually an erosion. He carves out majestic landscapes from thousands of unused encyclopedias. From the glorious peaks of mountains, we can clearly see the erosion to the point at which it flattens and becomes almost dreary and stale.
Is this what is happening to our culture? Do we 'erode' it to nothingness?
See the carved landscapes below and decide whether our culture is dissolving into extinction.
