New York City-based artist Brian Dettmer’s nickname is the “Book Surgeon” and with good reason. His art is created almost exclusively using old books, text books, and encyclopedias.
But more precisely, the nickname is because Dettmer uses surgical tools like tweezers, knives, scalpels to dissect and transform old books into amazingly intricate and unique works of art.
What is more amazing is that, his works are not just sculptures using books. They’re somewhat related to the book’s original content.
“My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception.” – Brian Dettmer
