Ran across another artist who literally deconstructs books (as well as music scores and other printed matter). Her name is Georgia Russell, and she uses a scalpel to cut books into new forms. It's interesting to see books that are "liberated" from their original form. I have mixed feelings--as someone who creates books, it feels a bit weird to see books cut to pieces, but she does such a beautiful job and the results are quite stunning. I'm guessing that she doesn't use books that are particularly valuable in themselves, and I like the idea of taking a book that would otherwise moulder away on a shelf somewhere (or get tossed into the garbage), and turning it into something that transcends its original form and content.
