its like a waterfall, but with books instead

So I was riding down the street minding my own business when I cam across a bookfall, like a waterfall made out of books. I don’t know about you, but that’s not an everyday occurrence for me. Turns out it is just one in a series of art installations called Biographies by Alicia Martin. These aren’t fake books, and they aren’t even covered with anything, so standing near the sculpture is like standing in an old bookstore.

 

With time the books have become soggy, and aged from the rain, and have developed new character.  I loved the way that the sculpture looked like the books were flowing right out of the window, but after closer inspection each of the old books were a piece of art in themselves. More of her book work can be found here.
