A New Life for Old Books
[ BLOG POST / NOT MY WORK ]
Remember the day’s when you were at the school library digging through an encyclopedia for a science project? Well, the online world has pretty much removed any likeliness of picking one up again–unless it’s to ponder at Alexander Korzer-Robinson’s beautiful cut-out pieces.
Crafted from the pages of old encyclopedias which have been liberated from dusty attics, Alexander creates an entirely different world by cutting around the books original illustrations and removing pages. His background in psychology is appropriate as the visuals he presents leave a lot to ponder.
I really appreciate that he has brought new life to an object that once stood for so much more. Alexander describes his work as: “They are no longer tools to learn about the world, but rather a means to gain insight about oneself.”
